Grow London is now in its second year. Last year was a fabulous show, beautifully curated with top-notch nurseries, classy garden furniture and the most desirable tools and it looks to be the same again this Friday to Sunday. What’s more, there are great talks happening every day and I’m looking forward to hearing Cleve West, Helen Yemm, Patti Barron and Fergus Garrett talk on Saturday. What a line-up! Wildgoose Nursery will be there again with their deliciously scented Violas, Crug Farm will be offering up some exciting and unusual plants (which should mostly be hardy in London) and Hardy’s return with their glorious herbaceous perennials (see top pic). The show is taking place on Hampstead Heath and if you fancy killing two birds with one stone, you can go for a walk and then bring your loyal canine into the show with you. Can’t say fairer than that!
The show costs £16 on the door, but pre-booked tickets are only £10.80 (a tenner plus booking fee). Not to be missed!
