Avenue Gardens, Regents Park

Went out yesterday to Regents Park with two friends Kate who is a fashion designer and Carol garden design. The flower bed which I’d never seen before were so colourful, they must represent the best in English gardening design.

Some history from a web search

The Avenue Gardens, located near the Broad Walk, have formal displays of spring bulbs and summer bedding. There are tiered fountains, evergreen hedges and vast ornamental bowls filled with flowers.

The original ornaments in the Avenue Gardens have been restored and some Victorian-style planting has been re-introduced to provide year-round interest.

The Avenue Gardens were originally planted by John Nash as the Broad Walk with eight rows of trees. The trees did not thrive and were inspected by various experts, including the Victorian garden designer William Andrews Nesfield, who put forward a design for new formal gardens.
