Megan’s London Garden – Bagicha Bazaar



My name is Megan, and I live in Kentish Town, North London, England. When we moved into our house, our garden was in complete disrepair—broken brick walls, broken thatch, and rotting decking. Now we have a little oasis with formal planting and bright color combinations.

Bright green and red coral bells are open.Although commonly grown for its colorful foliage, coral bells (Heuchera hybrids, zones 5-9) have clusters of small flowers that can be quite pretty.

Close up of white dahliasIt’s hard to beat the perfect dahlia (The dahlia hybrid, zones 8-11 or as a tender bulb) blooms with a layer of perfect white petals. Dahlias are equally beautiful in the garden or in a vase indoors.

Adult and baby fox in the gardenThe garden is not only home to beautiful flowers—the foxes enjoy the space, too! I hope they do their part to keep hungry rabbits and other pests away.

Close up of blue hardy geranium flowers.Cranberry, or Hardy Geranium (Geranium hybrid, zones 5-9) is a spectacular perennial. It is easy to care for and has clouds of beautiful blue flowers.

Close-up of tulips of different colorsThis beautiful row of tulips is interspersed with hydrangea and primroses (Primula hybrid, zones 3–8).
