Hinton Road in July

Rarely does a garden have as much packed into so confined a space as Antonia Dudley-Smith's. 'I've always loved plants — my mother is a very keen gardener — and grow as many as I can cram in,' says Antonia from the city garden in south-east London that she has created with her partner Frances Szekely. Theirs' is a small plot, measuring just 35-metres-long by 5-metres-wide, but it gives an illusion of greater space than the dimensions suggest because the boundary fences have been kept low and partly veiled by planting. 'This means we can benefit from 'borrowed' views of our neighbours' gardens, making ours seem much wider,' she adds. Most people keep gardening as their hobby, but for Antonia it has become her profession.
