Cadogan is delighted to have taken part in this year’s National Garden scheme, opening Cadogan Place South gardens to the public on 9 April.
Since being founded in 1927, the National Garden scheme has encouraged garden owners across the UK to open their private lands to the public for exceptional causes, with entrance fees supporting the National Garden scheme’s chosen charities. An additional £240 was also raised for the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation through cake sales, prepared and sold by Cadogan volunteers. This will help the Foundation’s chosen charity, Hands for the Community, which supports those feeling isolated and vulnerable within the Royal Borough.
A listed Heritage Landscape, Cadogan Place South is the Estate’s largest and most diverse garden. Developed by architect Henry Holland as part of the development of Hans Town in 1777, this garden boasts a wide collection of trees, shrubs and plants, including a rare 300 year old mulberry tree, black bamboo, magnolias, and palms.
