‘Enchanted Gardens’ re-homed in London Bridge
 
The gold medal and People’s Choice Award winning ‘Enchanted Gardens’, designed by Butter Wakefield, arrived in its various parts from Derbyshire on the 15th June to a gang of Belmond volunteers eager to re-home the plants at their new site on the estates bordering Newcomen Street.
 
 
 
An incredibly productive (and hot!) day of work resulted in a new allotment space, the planting of eighteen 2.5m tall hornbeams to form small native hedges, a new 26sqm flower bed and the preparation of existing beds ready for a fresh planting scheme.
 
  
 
 
 
The work will continue over the coming weeks with residents undertaking the final elements of planting and sections of wildflower meadow are planned for spring 2018. Not only will the final project dramatically improve the aesthetic of these gardens and make them more user-friendly to residents but it will also bring major ecological benefits.
 
Alison Booth, Editorial Director at Belmond said: "It was tough but exciting work and we are delighted with the finished result. We are pleased that local residents will give it new life by tending it on community gardening days over the years to come.”
 
Work to improve the space had already begun as part of Team London Bridge’s programme to enhance the area’s pockets of greenery and connect the residential and business communities, however the donation of the Chatsworth garden was a welcome surprise which has rapidly accelerated and raised the ambitions of the project. We, and the residents of Northfleet & Betsham House are incredibly grateful to Butter, the team at Belmond and our gardeners from Putting Down Roots for helping deliver the transformation.
