A winter garden of eternal life in London

There is one garden square in London that is alive with colour and shape and abundant flora throughout the year. Even in the darkest days of winter and in the uncertainty of pandemic, its continuous flowering provides a sense of eternal hope for all who live around it and have access to it.

For National Garden Scheme CEO, George Plumptre, who looks out across the square, the two acre garden has provided hope and solace throughout the lock-downs, not least the latest one in January. He’s been sharing the delights of the garden square on his twitter feed since last March and here we share some January delights.
