Woodland Garden

This is the Surbiton entrance to the promenade where we drew inspiration from the winter woodland entrance displays at Kew Gardens. It is currently planted up with snowdrops, hellebores, euphorbia and aquilegias. We’ll add more shade and drought tolerant plants during summer. We’ve also just sowed more grass seeds to improve the grass area. The flower bed has been framed with cut tree branches to provide a naturalistic feel.

New slate signage and the tree branches provide a naturalistic edge to the flower beds

A little further down, it also has four ornamental cherry trees (Amanogawa) – three donated by local resident and QPF member, Janette, who helped plant the trees with her family.
