Mixed Borders – Plan Your Visit

The snowdrops have blown, the blossom has had it – but the poets are still growing. With two months to go before Open Garden Squares Weekend, our resident poets are nurturing the seedlings of their poems and projects, ready to display them round London’s green spaces the weekend of 17/18 June. The poets have plans for poetry trails, readings, exhibitions and more; there are horticultural, historical and collaborative poems already under construction.

Adult tickets cost from £13, and gives you access to the dozens and dozens of participating gardens – book in advance here:
