Tickets are on sale now for the London Square Open Gardens weekend of Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June 2022. Most of the gardens are not normally open to the public and one of the most personal and private is MPG member Mona Abboud’s long narrow garden in Highgate with gorgeous exotics and a collection of Corokia. Tickets can be booked at https://londongardenstrust.eventcube.io/. Our picture shows Pembridge Square, created between 1856 and 1864, captured by Barrie Stead. This garden near Notting Hill Gate has a rose garden, long herbaceous border, woodland and wild flower areas and children’s play space.
