Watch your food grow in the kitchen garden

The kitchen garden has been at Ham since the mid 1650s and is currently one of the most productive walled kitchen gardens in London. It provides our café with produce all year round, from purple-podded peas to salsify, skirret and scorzonera. Our gardeners aim to be as true to the 17th century as they can.
