Nine Elms has a rich history of horticulture and growing food. To celebrate this tradition, Urban Canopy have planted a range of herbs and plants to create a wellbeing Tea Trail around the local area.

The Nine Elms Tea Trail was originally commissioned by Wandsworth Council as part of the Happy Streets Festival 2019.

The Trail can be found in herb and plant beds across the Savona, Patmore and Carey Gardens estates, which are neighbours with New Covent Garden Market and Food Exchange.

Different medicinal and health benefits of the plants are explained on the signs next to the newly revived and replanted beds.

Check out the maps and take a self-guided walk to see the herbs and plants!
