In the garden

Winter

With the onset of winter, the garden at Fulham Palace has changed once again and the beautiful silhouettes of our deciduous trees are finally revealed.  There are, however, many evergreen trees still holding their form.  Our much loved 500-year-old Holm Oak, Quercus ilex, a Great Tree of London and one of the oldest of its kind in Britain, stands wide and tall unaffected by the wintery weather.

 

The Fulham Palace walled garden is well worth a visit. We leave the borders uncut at this time of year,  so seed heads and leaf forms sparkle when there is a heavy frost.  Also at this time of year, you can really appreciate the vastness of the space encompassed by the walls.  The garden is just over 1 hectare (about 2.5 acres).

Look out for:

  • sparkling frosts on the grass and borders
  • beautiful tree silhouettes
  • birds on our feeders on the old pear tree in the walled garden
  • a hot drink in the café to warm up

Natural play area

Our new natural play area is now open! This play area uses logs and wooden objects saved from previous tree work on site as a basis for natural play, encouraging families to connect with nature in a fun and enjoyable way. Children are encouraged to interact creatively with natural materials set in a woodland area of our botanic garden.
