Local Information :: garden listings
Did you know there are two allotments in St Margarets and another two fairly close in Twickenham and a total of 24 in the borough?
The two in St Margarets are Cavendish House, right behind the Cavendish House (between Hill View Road and Cole Park Road) and Brook Road Allotments (off Brook Road, between the A316 and St Margarets Grove).
The waiting list at Cavendish is currently over 10 years long and closed. As are all lists in Richmond Upon Thames.

Kew Gardens is a leading centre of botanical research, a training ground for professional gardeners, and a popular visitor attraction. The gardens are mostly quite informal, with a few more formal areas. There are extensive conservatories, a herbarium, and a library.
Kew is important as a repository of seeds; it has one of the most important seedbanks. With the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Australian National Herbarium, they cooperate in the IPNI database to produce an authoritative source of information on the nomenclature of plants.
The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) London Wetland Centre is an award winning nature reserve and visitor attraction.
