The Garden

This private rooftop terrace garden offers stunning views of London's skyline and is a perfect example of planting for biodiversity right in the heart of the city. It shows how a wide range of plants can be grown successfully in a garden all year round. The multi award-winning garden, which includes a lawned area laid to golf green specification, features unusual and exotic plants as well as garden favourites. Paul Burnage from Grasshopper Displays (garden contractor) provides the vision for this rooftop garden which stems from his love for all things horticultural. Paul will be available on Sunday to chat with visitors.
