WHAT: Evening garden visit and talk by owner Nigel Watts with Prosecco and canapés
WHERE: East Dulwich, London
PRICE: £50


This evening we visit the garden of professional
gardener and keen plantsman Nigel Watts. When
he is not busy with his clients he is to be found
in the borders or visiting gardens and nurseries
with his partner David Hawtin. The garden,
which featured in the May 2016 issue of the RHS
magazine, The Garden, is situated in a South
London square. They have been working on it for
over 20 years.
It is constantly evolving and has been influenced
by travels to Italy, France and Japan. Within a
formal framework dominated by two enormous
fastigiate yews, grasses and a riotous profusion
of plants in jewel-like colouring, with dramatic
foliage, reach their peak in high summer. The
south-facing front garden is a mass of salvias.
The side of the house is shady and home to a
collection of camellias. An important feature of the
garden is a large collection of pots (currently 95 in
total) containing many unusual plants for sun and
for shade. All this is achieved within a space 12
metres by 6 metres!
