Cadogan Place Gardens

At the end of the 18th century this garden was known as the London Botanic Garden. The mulberry trees on the south lawn are around 300 years old and thought to have been grown for the silk trade.
The severe storm in 1987 resulted in the loss of many large trees, which have now been replaced with a variety of ornamental trees, opening up the garden.
An interesting mixed border is planted opposite the mulberries. On the east side, a walk running the length of the garden is being developed for spring interest, along with a fern garden.
Near the tennis courts, a water garden is partially hidden by black bamboo and willows, while to the centre of the south garden is the award-winning Hans Sloane Garden, adapted from a design for the 2003 Chelsea Flower Show to celebrate the life of the physician and collector Sir Hans Sloane, who died in 1753. His daughter Elizabeth married the 1st Earl Cadogan.
William Wilberforce (1759-1833), campaigner for the abolition of slavery, lived at 44 Cadogan Place.
