Gale force winds on Sunday night brought down a number of trees across the south east. Neither Kew nor Chiswick House Gardens suffered significant losses. Geraldine King, head gardener at Chiswick House told me they’d done a lot of work in recent years to try and safeguard their large trees against high winds.
This was the scene in Grove Park though, with a large tree fallen right across Elmwood Rd. Thanks to Andy Murray for the photograph.
