Garden Museum - Gnome and away: secrets of the collection

See the Garden Museum's fascinating collection of gardening-related objects and art works before they are packed away to be cleaned and ready for installing in the renovated Museum in early 2017...
Until October 30

You will have the chance to rifle through packing boxes and cupboards as well as see highlights such as a Victorian slide box of flora and fauna, a scrapbook of pressed flowers collected by a teenager from London bombsites, a hanging installation of antique tools and a costume display of vintage gardening gear.

Everything on show is available to adopt as part of the Garden Museum Adoption Scheme in support of the Development Project.
  • The collection is on display at the Garden Museum, Lambeth Palace Road until October 30; for more details, visit
