    Formed in 2009

    The London Gardens Network was formed in 2009 to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between professional gardeners in the London area. It was felt there was a particular set of pressures that gardeners within the M25 faced, and creating the network and sharing information could alleviate those pressures.

    Annual Seminar’s

    The seminars are held for all London gardeners and topics vary every year. Previous seminars have covered a variety of horticultural subjects, including biodiversity, conservation, managing volunteers and careers in horticulture. Visit our events section.

    Highest Standards

    We aim to be of benefit not just to horticultural managers but also trainees and all levels in between, by promoting the highest standards of practical expertise. We are keen on creating an atmosphere of learning and mentoring for those new to gardening.

    A Dedicated Committee
