Garden Museum Houseplant Festival

The annual Houseplant Festival at London’s Garden Museum is back for its third year. Running from Saturday 23rd to Sunday 24th October 2021, the festival offers a wonderful chance to refresh your houseplant collection and pick up tips for keeping your plants in tip-top condition.

The Festival is curated by Alice Vincent @noughticulture (author of Rootbound and How to Grow Stuff) and is a two-day celebration of houseplants where you can meet your favourite Instagram plant experts, pick up some tips for looking after your precious greenery and take part in workshops.

There is a Houseplant Clinic, free Plant Swap and food and drink from the Garden Café. This year the Festival is staying open late on Saturday evening, so if you like your plant shopping with a cocktail on the side, then it’s the perfect venue.

Stalls include a curated selection of plant shops, terrariums, artists and designers for all your urban jungle needs. There will also be design-led pots, artisan horticultural ephemera and botanically inspired art and books.

Over the weekend, Museum gardeners Matt Collins and Thom Rutter will be hosting a drop-in Houseplant Clinic and on Sunday you can bring your healthy potted plants, cuttings etc from 10am for the plant swap which commences at 11.30am.

The Festival is open Saturday 23rd October from 10.30am to 9pm and on Sunday 24th October from 10.30am to 5pm. Tickets are available by online pre-booking only, please select your time slow when booking.
