Wood Vale Garden

33 Wood Vale, London

Small London private garden but with lots of interesting plants

Open under the National Garden Scheme. Nearest Tube station Highgate.

Hidden behind a 1930's terrace in Muswell Hill, North London, the 1/5 of an acre garden is home to a great variety of plants including a large collection of Mediterranean and Australasian trees and shrubs, some rare and unusual, particularly the extensive collection of "Corokias" from New Zealand.

The first section comprises a clipped box hedge surrounding a centrepiece fountain and framing the Mediterranean type plants. The long and narrow garden then flows through an archway leading to a meandering path flanked by two long mixed borders of soft textured grasses and perennials, punctuated by a variety of shrubs, trees and bamboos.

This then opens out onto a wider more intimate area enclosed by a "Corokia" hedge, containing a small rockery, bog garden, and borders which surround the raised rose beds.
