Garden Planting Trends in North London for 2024

In 2024, gardening continues to evolve, reflecting broader lifestyle and environmental trends. In North London, where space is at a premium and ecological awareness is growing, garden planting trends are particularly dynamic. At Eden Gardens, we stay up to date about these changes, and we’re excited to share the upcoming trends in garden design and plant choices that are shaping North London’s green spaces. Whether you’re a novice gardener or a seasoned green thumb, these trends offer fresh ideas to invigorate your garden.

1. Sustainable Gardening

Sustainability remains a key focus for 2024, with more gardeners opting for practices that support the environment. This includes using drought-resistant plants to conserve water and incorporating native species that thrive in the local climate without excessive water or chemical inputs. Eden Gardens recommends considering plants like Lavender, Sedum, or native wildflowers, which not only resist pests naturally but also require less water and care.

2. Small Space, Big Impact

With the continuing trend of smaller living spaces in North London, creative solutions for compact areas are increasing. Vertical gardening will gain even more popularity, making use of upward space for growing herbs, vegetables, and climbing plants like Ivy and Clematis. Green walls are not just beautiful, they are also practical, enhancing privacy and reducing noise pollution.

3. Edible Gardens

The grow-your-own food movement continues to gain momentum in 2024. Even with limited space, North Londoners are planting everything from tomatoes and peppers in balcony planters to integrating edible plants like kale and chard into ornamental beds. Eden Gardens helps clients select varieties that do well in urban environments, ensuring that even the most compact spaces can yield a fruitful harvest.

4. Wildlife-Friendly Features

As biodiversity concerns increase, more gardeners are looking to attract and support local wildlife. Incorporating pollinator-friendly plants, bird feeders, and small water features encourages wildlife to visit and helps sustain local ecosystems. Plants such as Honeysuckle, Foxglove, and Echinacea are excellent for attracting bees and butterflies.

5. Outdoor Living Spaces

Gardens are increasingly seen as extensions of the home, especially for those who lack space indoors. The integration of comfortable seating areas, outdoor kitchens, and even weather-proof art are set to become more prevalent. Eden Gardens specialises in creating cohesive outdoor living areas that mix functionality with aesthetic appeal.

6. Mood-Boosting Gardens

There’s a growing recognition of the therapeutic benefits of gardens. In 2024, expect to see more North London gardens designed with mental well-being in mind. This includes the use of tranquil water features, fragrant plants like Lavender and Jasmine, and soft, calming colour palettes in plant selections and garden accessories.

7. Eco-Chic Garden Design

Sustainable doesn’t mean giving up on style. The upcoming year will embrace ‘eco-chic’, a trend that combines eco-friendly practices with contemporary design. This means using upcycled materials for planters and paths, choosing sustainable bamboo or reclaimed wood for garden furniture, and selecting plants that require fewer resources.


These trends for 2024 not only reflect changing lifestyles and priorities but also represent opportunities for North Londoners to reconnect with nature in meaningful, sustainable ways. At Eden Gardens, we’re excited to help you bring these trends to life in your own spaces, creating gardens that are not only beautiful and functional but also kind to the planet. Whether you’re redesigning your entire garden or just making a few targeted updates, these trends offer exciting possibilities for every gardener.
