St Mary's Secret Garden is a horticultural project in Hackney, London. This small secret garden is often described as a peaceful oasis in the middle of a very busy area of the capital. It is approximately 0.7 of an acre in size and has been developed to create a diverse green space. There are four interlinking areas - a natural woodland, a food growing area (including vegetable beds, sort fruit and fruit trees), an herb and sensory garden and an area of herbaceous borders. We have a fully accessible classroom and a large greenhouse. Organic principles are used in maintaining the site and to encourage wildlife and biodiversity within the garden.

 


This is a small, community garden a little "off the beaten track" near London. They are working with the local community to encourage organic vegetable gardening. If that is your area of interest, it might be worth a stop. Not much from an ornamental horticulture standpoint.
