Camberwell Secret Garden Needs Your Seedlings

Behind KFC on Kimpton Rd is a secret garden and they are looking for help to re-establish the herb garden. See their site below for some calming pictures of the garden and a map of how to find them. You can visit between 10am and 1pm on Sundays.

They write:

Could you could help us by donating herb seeds, seedlings/cuttings? We have rosemary, common thyme and sage, flat leaf parsley, bay, fennel - and borage, but would appreciate different varieties. Plus comfrey if anyone has it.

In return we can give seedlings of Verbena Bonariensis and Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ also Cerinthe, Nigella, poppy and orange Californian poppy seeds and Bay leaves.

Contact Kate at to arrange drop off (Sundays) or collection.

Many thanks
