Wayne Amiel is opening his garden to the public for a day as part of the National Garden Scheme.

Drop everything to see this exuberant garden in Clapham Old Town . Full of colour and lush large-leaved plants, this garden serves Wayne as a joyous reminder of his Jamaican roots.

About the Garden

Open-garden 7The mature look was achieved in just 6 years in an area resembling a building site with knowledge gained from gardening books and local gardening friends. Plants received as gifts were propagated and grown from seed, many in containers for overwintering.

Clapham Open garden 3The mix of exotic and traditional English plants together with the imaginative design gives the visitor surprises at every turn and is a delight.

The garden was featured in Amateur Gardening Magazine and Anna Pavord writing in the Independent called this “an amazing garden”.
