GROW LONDON >>> The Contemporary Garden Fair, Hampstead, London
Last month I was one lucky recipient of this heaving goodie bag courtesy of Camron PR & GROW London.
GROW London is the new contemporary gardener’s go-to, set in the glorious surroundings of Hampstead Heath, which previews tonight, 18th June 2015.
Inspired by stylish European gardening shows, GROW London is a new concept in British gardening events: an urban, boutique show, with around 100 carefully selected exhibitors selling an unrivalled mix of plants, furniture and paraphernalia in a stunningly styled marquee.
GROW London is the brainchild of entrepreneur Will Ramsay, founder of the hugely successful Affordable Art Fair, which is now a global brand with fairs in 14 major cities around the world.
With an extraordinary garden of his own, Will wants to share his passion for the outdoors and create a unique, educational and fun contemporary garden event for people of all ages and experience to enjoy.
Situated on beautiful Hampstead Heath, offering an inspiring choice of rare plants, stylish furniture, handcrafted tools and informative workshops to help your garden flourish, no matter how big or small.
Below are some of the treats I was sent, carefully tested by my 2.5 year old nephew Valder and Sister in Law in her beautiful community garden in Clapham, London.
A beautiful personalised Sneeboer stainless steel trowel.
Valder decided the bunting was more fitting as a kite 😉
A genius product, these French Mouillere slip on shoe protectors (which retail around 49€) slip over your shoes and mould to your foot to protect you for popping into the garden without getting muddy or wet feet. So clever, and definitely a welcome addition to our family of welly boots and garden footwear. Available to purchase at Grow this weekend.
These Niwaki Secateurs need little explanation. Used by Jake Hobson, this Japanese brand offer some of the best made garden kit you’ll likely need in your urban garden.
Now, this is the most wonderful little product. These Kabloom Seedbombs are handmade with an ‘explosive’ mix of peat free compost, coir and a section of flower seeds embedded into the grenade like shell. At around £2.95 they are a super fun way to spread a bit of cheer in an otherwise empty flower bed or window box. Here is Valder below, showing us how you get started…
Soak the bomb, take a quick look all is fine, and throw like a soldier into the desired area…
Job done. Well done pup.
Thank you again to Camron PR and Grow London for such a fun afternoon in the allotment exploring all these wondering items that are available to buy this weekend at the show.
