Grow London: the capital’s classiest garden festival
Grow London is a new kind of flower festival, one that aims to show its visitors how to get the most out of their outdoor space while indulging all of the senses. Its main advantage is a no crowds, no rush approach, something quite rare in London.
The show was designed in such a way that when a visitor steps inside the pavilion where the show is being held they will instantly feel that space is not an issue at this show and that clutter and lack of order are not on the menu for the day. Minimalists and the people who are overwhelmed by their busy lives would enjoy the show as everything is just right!
Another key element of the show is that all its exhibitors are carefully selected so they can provide a classic and urban-contemporary mix of the highest quality garden products and plants. So if you are on the lookout for new trends and fashionable items this show is the place to go.
One of the things that really makes this show stand out is that it does not feature show gardens and competitions, and instead focuses on talks and workshops. Expert speakers cover issues ranging from how to get the most from your garden to working with small spaces as well as teaching visitors top industry tricks and new trends.
Finally, there is the food! Everyone who ever attended a flower show know how difficult it can be to find proper food at such events, as the majority offer cakes and sandwiches only, But this is not the case with the Grow London. Caffe on the ground has a nice selection of hot meals, salads and tasty desserts at a reasonable price and that’s at the flower show (an unseen generosity)!!! And if you are on the look for drinks there is a champagne bar.
The show is a total gemstone as it caters to all need imaginable. Enough words, let me show you around the 2015 show. This one is over now, but it will be back next year, so mark it down in your calendar.
