An Unusual Penge Garden

|I have lived in London for over ten years now and have come across many a front garden, from the scruffy and unloved to those with beautiful tiled and box edged paths. This is a completely different type of garden.

This little garden in Penge is a feast for the eyes with its incredible array of exotic and succulent plants.


The owner was kind enough to speak to me about his collection which he has curated from specialist shows and bought from nurseries and online shops.


There are lots of amazing varieties I’ve never seen before, such as this beautiful flowering plant.


This house is in a beautiful area of Penge. It’s a lovely area for a walk to end with a cup of tea and cake at Alexandra Nurseries.


It was inspirational to see someone’s passion for their collection and that they were able to display it so beautifully in a small space.


Have you come across any beautiful, unusual private gardens?
