Thanks to Open Garden Squares Weekend, every June us Londoners get a flash of the capital's best green bits without, for once, the need to scale a fence or cro-bar wrought iron railings. Back for a 17th year, 2015's OGSW takes place over the weekend of Saturday June 13 – Sunday June 14.

Over 200 gardens across 27 London boroughs, all for a recession-beating £10 for the whole weekend?? What's not to love! A great annual event . . . Gardens in skips, on barges, rooftops, at restaurants, historic buildings, artists studios and galleries, as well as community gardens, traditional squares - and lots more. Count me in . . .
