This spectacular salad contains mallow, elderflower and nettle – all carefully picked on a beautiful evening with Shane’s on Canalside. This weekend, budding foragers can Really Get To Know Wild Plants or become a plant alchemists and create A Garden in a Teacup.

For something a little heady find out about the history of London Gin distilling and tasting, get high on laughter at the ‘not quite’ Royal Variety show or drift and dream away on an urban greening poetry tour.

For musical delights enjoy sweet melodies at Feeding Dreams and some fantastic folk music at Folk and flowers -for family fun visit a Roof Garden Fun Day  and Patterns, Patterns, Patterns! Summer half-term activities for children aged 2-16.

Share your garden with us and make up a patchwork gallery of fringe gardens – just use #mygardenrightnow. We can’t wait to see your houseplants, balconies, herbs or muddy toes – because the fringe is all about sharing our gardens and experiences.
