18.09.2017- London Loves: Flowers & Flea, Flat Iron Square

Monday, 18 September 2017

As we inch towards the winter, I'm finding myself rather bereft at the prospect of not being able to spend as much time in the garden as I'd like to, especially after having such a successful summer in terms of how many new planting projects came to fruition. Whilst I'm already mulling over which blooms I can get ready for growing next spring, over the weekend I was lucky enough to happen upon the perfect autumn stopgap for keeping my green fingers busy- the RHS' Flowers & Flea Market, held at Flat Iron Square in Southwark:


Marrying lots of vintage treasures for breathing fresh life into your interiors with plenty of inspiration for autumn and winter planting, the Flowers & Flea Weekend really was a one-stop-shop for the new season, whether you were on the hunt for some stunning archive prints, classic crockery or heavenly houseplants to inject a splash of colour now that the darker evenings are upon us. There was a bounty of beautiful secondhand goodies to have a rummage through, as well as lots of practical demonstrations and workshops, whether you wanted to learn how to rustle up a floral crown or transform a terrarium. I'm already keeping an eager eye peeled for the date of the next event!

What did you get up to this weekend?
