The Garden

Sycamore House is sheltered housing for the over 60s, run by Hammersmith United Charities, which is celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2018. The garden, a hidden oasis in the middle of Shepherd’s Bush, was designed and planted in March 2012. The London Gardens Society awarded the garden, which is a sister scheme to John Betts House, third place in its large community garden category in 2017. Features include plants to encourage bees and butterflies, a pond, pergola and arches for climbing plants as well as a large community greenhouse.
