The Garden Museum in London is the oldest museum in the world of gardening, which is located in a corner of green around a thousand year old church in Lambeth Palace Road, in the heart of the economic and financial capital!
In a nutshell, it is so widespread in the UK, interest in gardening that the English themselves call their country: "A Land of Gardners."
The Garden Museum is a small space, a garden and a collection of antique tools, pots and products for the care of the plants. Here we also sell books, seeds, and there is also the "tea room" English!
The realization of such a place had its origin and inspiration from the tomb of John Tradescant and his son, both great gardeners, "hunters" of plants, travelers and collectors, and they themselves founded a museum, garden viewThe Ark, in the garden site in the same parish of the Garden Museum. They were responsible for the importation into the United Kingdom many plants, such as a particular variety of cypress, red maple, tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) and Yucca.
