created out of passion and expertise.

Specialising in the urban garden,

A story of passion
and expertise

One Saturday afternoon in 1998, standing in a derelict button factory, Beryl Henderson made a decision. This was the place where she would create N1 – a truly life enhancing garden centre in the heart of London.

Beryl, a passionate gardener living in north London, had a vision for a new kind of garden centre. She wanted to create a life enhancing place that would transform the urban gardening experience. An urban garden centre with quality plants, grown by specialist growers, and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

18 years on N1 continues to strive for excellence, winning several awards for outstanding customer service, and in 2013 and 2014 N1 was awarded best boutique garden centre at the industry’s Garden Retail Awards.

Connecting to the urban gardening movement, N1 continues to attract innovative suppliers within horticulture, design and home accessories, making urban gardening accessible and truly inspirational to both the knowledgeable and the beginner gardener alike.

Staying true to Beryl’s vision, N1 is a place where urban gardening is made possible every day, through passion and expertise.

All ornamental grasses look spectacular at this time of year, with their many types of seed heads. You can allow these to dry on the plant, so they offer a feature during the winter months. Cut them back in spring before new growth commences.

For the love
of our garden

Whatever outdoor space you call your own,
plants and gardening can be a natural part

Plants come in many different forms. Some plants like a bit of shade,
some enjoy of good dousing of water, and others will only bloom given full sun.
Some have thorns, some climb by tendrils, and others creep or trail along the
ground. You’d be surprised at the selection offered at N1.

Louise Alhadeff, outdoor plant director at N1 and W6 and her team
of plant specialists, work in close collaboration with selected nurseries to
ensure the quality of all plants. To make sure our customers get the quality
