The White Garden

The White Garden

Complementing the palace’s exhibition, Diana: Her Fashion Story, the garden will be planted with flowers and foliage inspired by memories of the Princess’s life, image and style.

From 15 May for two weeks, the gardeners will be changing over from the spring to summer design. Though the lower tiers will be emptied and replanted, there is still plenty in bloom in the back of the garden.

In Spring and Summer 2017, the historic Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace will be temporarily transformed into a White Garden.

Spring planting will include an elegant palette of tulips and scented narcisii through a carpet of 'forget me nots'. In the summer, pots of classic English white roses will surround the reflective pool in the centre of the garden and the planting will become more exuberant, with glowing ornamental grasses weaving through Cosmos daisies and billows of graceful Gaura.
