The Reaction: Grow at Hampstead Heath
This was our first time exhibiting at Grow London and we were so pleased with the warm welcome we received from everyone who came to see us. Grow London is a contemporary garden fair situated on Hampstead Heath which exhibits the best garden furniture, high quality accessories and of course incredibly posh plants!On our few wanderings around the huge tent we listened to some fantastic inspirational talks. We were most excited about Dave Goulson’s talk. Dave founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006 and his talk was about how we can improve the lives of bees and help them thrive. With 20 years of experience under his belt, it was truly inspiring to hear how he thought we should all help bees thrive. One thing he mentioned in particular was the huge decline in flower-rich grasslands which used to cover our British countryside. Hopefully with our ‘seeds for bees’ packs which sold really well at Grow, we can see our customers plant wildflowers in their own gardens which will give bees food and shelter.Grow was the first show we have done with our new card display which we think worked really well! Our cards proved to be more popular than ever, make sure you sign up to our newsletter to see when new card designs will be available! You may have met Alex, Lorna’s assistant, over the weekend who can be seen here working hard as always with one of our customers. We loved seeing all the dogs around the tent and made us miss our own studio dog, Jenkins! See him on his very own card here, its one of our favourites!
Catch us at Harrogate Home and Gift Festival between the 17th and 20th July to see our new collection.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Grow London, we loved chatting to new customers as well as our regulars!
