SPAB National Gardens Scheme

National Garden Scheme: Spitalfields Gardens

This summer the SPAB will be joining forces with other residents of Spitalfields to take part in the National Garden Scheme. We will be welcoming visitors into our courtyard garden, one of nine gardens in the area open and the £15 entry fee (giving
entry to all ten) will go towards nursing and caring charities. Tucked behind a Georgian silk merchant’s house - now the SPAB offices - is a shady courtyard garden. The borders are packed with ferns, hostas, and other shade-loving plants and an old lead cistern and dolly tubs are planted with traditional herbs. A large Magnolia grandiflora is the star. Join us for a colourful day out, visit the ten gardens taking part and chat to our volunteer gardener about managing a shady garden. We will also have a range of plants for sale.
