Next Event: Leigh Flower Show & Country Fayre, Surrey, Saturday, 20th July



Following on from a very successful first plant fair here in 2023, I'm delighted to be part of this year's Plant Fairs Roadshow at London's Horniman Museum in Forest Hill.

During the event you can listen to talks, buy rare and unusual plants from specialist nurseries, choose gardening tools and accessories, seek advice, and take part in garden tours. The nurseries cover a spectrum of plants including cottage-garden favourites, shade-loving plants, alpines, trees, shrubs and succulents.

The museum is hosting a series of talks on the bandstand curated by Head of Horticulture Errol Fernandes. This year’s theme is ‘The Ground Beneath our Feet’, with experts on soil health, underground ecosystems, our connection with the earth and the environment around us. Speakers include:


  • Claire Ratinon, organic food grower, author and Guardian Gardening columnist
  • Nadeem Perera, founder of the birdwatching collective, Flock Together and wildlife TV Presenter
  • Barney Pau, a creative working at the intersection of food and art
  • Charlotte Harris, Chelsea-winning designer


Joining me at the Horniman Museum are:



The Horniman Kiosk will be open for drinks and snacks and the ice cream stand will be open as usual. The Horniman Café will be open and stamps will allow re-entry to the event if you need to take a break from shopping.


Saturday, 6th July, 11 am - 4 pm. Admission £10 adults, children over 3 £2.50.


Although children are very welcome at the plant fair, this event is aimed at adult visitors and there will be no children’s activities.


Assistance animals only.
