London is known for its beautiful and well curated urban jungle appreciated by Londoners and visitors alike, from traditional English gardens in Kew Gardens, a vast-scaled national park in Richmond Park with deers lurking in the meadows minding their own business, a secret garden in Pergola and Hill Garden in Hampstead (a blog post coming up soon), city park in Hyde Park to an urban conservatory in the Barbican.

My all time favourite public garden is slightly enclosed, a true London gem away from the hustle and bustle, and it’s also a shopping paradise for gardening enthusiasts, local residents and local businesses, Clifton Nurseries in Warwick Avenue is definitely the winner.

A spot of afternoon tea and scrumptious cakes at The Quince Tree cafe inside a palm house, I personally recommend their Cherry and Pistachio cake, it was delicious. After spending a good hour of snapping away and admiring the nurseries, I didn’t leave the place empty handed, I bought a pot of baby cacti to play with!
