We’re adopting homeless plants from Hampton Court flower show

TARA is thrilled to be one of the community groups selected to help re-home plants from this year’s RHS Hampton Court flower show.

Big thanks to the House of Wayward Plants which is the Official Reuse Partner for the RHS and has helped millions of plants to get a new life after being used at Chelsea, Hampton Court etc.

We don’t yet know what we’re getting or how many of them, but that’s part of the excitement.

We’re picking the plants up on Saturday morning (13 July 2019) at 9am and expect to be planting them by 10:30am or so. If you want to pitch in and help, come and find us – we’ll base ourselves at the ‘pocket park’ on Tradescant Road near St Stephen’s Terrace. Bring a garden fork if you have one.

The plants are for use in the pocket parks, build-outs and planters in our streets, so if you have one near to you that you think merits attention in the form of fresh planting, feel free to come along and bag some plants for it.


PS: There was an interview with House of Wayward Plants on the BBC’s flower show coverage last Friday. You can still catch it on the BBC iPlayer for another few weeks (interview starts at 50:30)https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0006ny8/hampton-court-palace-garden-festival-2019-episode-4
