The Worshipful Company of Gardeners, first mentioned in City Corporation records in 1345, is a survivor from the medieval craft guilds which exercised control over the practice of their particular crafts and ensured a proper training through the system of apprenticeship.

The Metropolitan Public Gardens Association
The MPGA is a long established Charity which over the years has played a vital role in the preservation and improvement of countless gardens, neglected sites and green open spaces across London. We provide modest grants to those who share with us a desire to improve the environment and thus the quality of life for the local community. Our work brings us into contact with a wide variety of groups, including local councils, schools, hospitals, hospices, museums, voluntary organizations and community groups.
The London Gardens Society is a registered charity that has been established for over 100 years and it’s aim is “to make a permanent contribution towards beautifying London by the growing of flowers and shrubs thus improving the urban environment”.
Originally the Society gave away free seeds to encourage the citizens of London to brighten up the areas where they lived and worked by growing flowers. This has now been replaced with an annual garden competition.
The role of the London Gardens Society is one for stimulating pride in London especially by the cultivation of flowers and home Gardens.
So if you or someone you know has a lovely front garden, back garden, window boxes, containers, hanging baskets, patio, roof, balcony or a garden display in a public area no matter how small, you too, could enter! Why not join us today?
The competition also includes a class for commercial premises such as pubs and restaurants.
