London Plant Swap

We'd like to invite you to join us for our London Plant Swap 2018 at the gorgeous Benk + Bo!!

Bring along at least one, two or as many pest-free, beautiful plants as you wish to part with, these can be potted up or in the form of bare root propagations and cuttings. Meet some likeminded plant lovers, have a chat about the plant you are swapping and gain a new one to take away with you!

There will be 2 potting workshops with us during the event, one at 1pm and then one at 3.30, where we'll be on hand to guide you through how to repot your newly acquired plants and cuttings whilst explaining how and when to re-pot and teach you about the benefits of doing so. You'll also have the chance to get your hands dirty by mixing up your own potting medium most suited for your plant or cuttings, covering the importance of a good watering routine, as well as how to multiply your plant collection by propagation. Included in the workshop will he a hand thrown ceramic pot to take your new plants home in! Tickets for these workshops can be purchased when buying your admission ticket.

As well as potting and swapping we are joined by some of our favourite makers who will be selling throughout this afternoon, Grain & KnotHavelock StudioPlantation by Alicja Patanowska and Soil & Solder and more to be announced!

Our favourite ladies over at Spread London will also be supplying you with a welcome drink and then will be on hand for more delicious treats throughout the afternoon.
