The pitch at Highbury Stadium, now transformed into a minimalist modern garden in housing development Highbury Square joins a former shoe-making college-turned community garden where local people grow flax and plants to make fabric dye in Hackney, a sustainable edible roof garden on The Nomura Building in the City and a Notting Hill garden which children from Princes William and Harry’s former primary school use as a playground.

The event, on 14 and 15 June, will see classic London square gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, urban wildlife and ecology centres as well as the gardens of historic buildings, institutions and businesses, open to the public in 27 boroughs.
