Neighbouring Barnes is blessed with wonderful outdoor space but hidden behind many houses are small (and not so small) gems of gardens. From cottage gardens bursting with colour to woodland gardens with amazing foliage, every style abounds.

Once every two years visitors get the chance to see some of these secret spaces as their owners open them to raise money for FiSH. This year the coronavirus means we can’t walk around them physically but the schemes has brought over 30 gardens to you ..... virtually.

FiSH Neighbourhood Care is a local charity which looks after the elderly in Sheen, Mortlake and Barnes.

The organisers said: "Thank you so much to all those gardeners who have contributed photos and videos. We do hope you enjoy them, and do please donate to FiSH who would otherwise lose out from the money generated by this annual fundraiser."
