Heard's Gardens/ Cottage Nursery grounds update

Last week I was passing through Westminster, so I decided to take a small detour to the check out the old Heard's Gardens property to see if anything had happened with it.  Seems to be no takers on the property with the lovely exception of the weeds and wildflowers exploding through the gravel yard.


  1. What a shame. (But I bet there's some amazing self-sowing action happening in that soil.)

  2. It would be nice it the nursery would come to life again. At the moment I would settle for a chance to see all the self sown flowers and collect seed. This pattern of rain every 10 days to two weeks really has a salutary effect on wildflowers and weeds.

  3. Such a contrast to the previous post, with Annie's looking so alive with both plants and with human activity. Quite poignant.
