Chelsea Fringe gardening festival returns to Hackney

THE Chelsea Fringe has returned for its annual celebration of gardening across London.

Inspired by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Fringe centres on participation, giving people the opportunity to express themselves through gardening.

Hackney is among a number of boroughs showcasing work from both professionals and gardening enthusiasts. On offer are exhibitions, talks, walks and shows.

Highlights include learning about the origins of gin and tonic at Hoxton Hotel; teaching children to plant seeds and bake with herbs at Geffrye Museum; and tips on growing your own flowers, vegetables and making rocket pizzas at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.

The Poppy Estate is also hosting an open day to celebrate the ongoing transformation of Clapton Park with wildflowers, shrubs, allotments for residents and welcoming public spaces. There will be a choir, seed giveaways and tea, cake, and samosas.

The Chelsea Fringe runs until 9 June. Most events are free, but some need to be booked in advance.
