Dalston Flower Show launches this Saturday
The first ever Dalston Flower Show launches on Saturday (May 19) at the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.
The show will see three weeks of garden tours, workshops, and celebrations of all things botanical at the garden in Dalston Lane and further afield.
The show is also part of the London-wide Chelsea Fringe Festival.
“We want the Dalston Flower show to highlight all the amazing green-fingered people there are in Dalston – not just planting in public spaces, but growing on balconies, in window boxes, on estates and schools, – all helping make Dalston the brilliant place it is to live in,” said organiser Marie Murray.
On Saturday there will be ‘meet the grower’ talks at the Dalston Roof Park in Ashwin Street, tours of FARM:Shop in Dalston Lane with samples of edible flower treats, and workshops and pizza making in the clay oven at the Eastern Curve garden.
