Gardens 200

From Saxon times Teddington was agricultural and in the 14th Century provided produce for the monks at Westminster Abbey. In medieval times Bushy Park was farmed. Today we are interested in anything that grows in Teddington, from weeds to willows. We are fortunate to live in one of the greenest boroughs in London.

Each June we organise “Teddington In Flower”, when keen gardeners open their back gardens to our members and the public. For four hours on a Sunday afternoon you can visit gardens you’d never normally be able to see, and all the money raised goes to benefit local charities. Photos of gardens from 2013 onwards can be seen in the Photo Gallery.

We work closely with the Council’s Parks officers not only in regard to public spaces such as Elmfield Gardens and Jubilee Gardens, but also anything to do with trees.
