Watching Gardener's World last week they mentioned the National Garden Scheme was holding an open weekend which meant you could have a look at people's gardens (who were participating in the scheme). I checked the website and found that there were several gardens in and around Arlington Square in North London taking part. So I persuaded OH to come along and have a nosy around the small but amazing gardens up in Islington (and drool at the equally nice houses!). Each garden was jam packed with inspiration and personality (as well as people!).
