Fed up with Gardeners’ World and lovely Monty and Nigel the dog being replaced by Wimbledon? Feeling a bit deflated now the Chelsea and Hampton Court flower shows have finished? Why not come to the American Museum for some garden inspiration?
The Flower or Mount Vernon Garden is now at its mid-summer best with soaring purple and white foxgloves, wonderful globe shaped aliums and floating cosmos. It is like an oasis of calm and a great time to come and take inspiration from the planting and colour combinations; also, why not buy some herbs from the terrace shop in order to start your own secret garden!
