The garden is featured in the >Good Gardens Guide where it is described as,”being full of carefully chosen plants and shrubs evoking a romantic atmosphere.” Visitors are always surprised at the interesting use of space and elements of surprise. The garden has been divided into four distinct areas. The York stone terrace near to the house has a display of agapanthus in huge containers. Breakfast can be taken here on fine days. There are seating areas throughout the garden where one can enjoy afternoon tea on a summer’s day. The garden is open to the public by appointment only and Winkle, up until recently, has been a County organiser for the >National Gardens Scheme in London.
“In Winkle Haworth’s delightful south London garden you won’t find outrageous colour combinations. Be prepared, instead, for subtler, well-planned surprises that reveal themselves gradually. For many who have long, thin back gardens that make them despair, this plot is inspirational.” London Evening Standard
“Throughout the garden there is a feeling of balance and proportion.. Small specimen trees draw the eye away from the houses that surround the garden, making the space feel secluded and private.” House Beautiful magazine
“Mrs. Winkle Haworth ist die seele dieses englischen gartens. Ihre warmherziger humor und ihre liebe zu pflanzen suchen ihresgleichen. ” Wohnen and Garten (a German magazine)
