Wild garden at Montrose House

Most of the people that I spoke to at the Petersham Open Gardens were keen to look around Montrose House which was open for the first time, and I was keen too.

Much of the garden was as expected to anybody used to travelling on the top deck of the 65 bus as it crawls around the sharp bend, but there was one surprise. Hidden in the far corner behind a line of trees is an area of wilderness that could just as easily be part of the nearby Richmond Park as a private garden.
