The Houseplant Festival curated by Noughticulture is back! And this year it's grown, spreading the festival out over three days to allow for a safe and socially distanced experience.

After a sell-out debut event in 2019, the Garden Museum are delighted to be able to return with more houseplants than ever in 2020. Once again the Garden Museum will be filled with a curated selection of plant shops, stylists, artists and designers chosen by urban gardening writer and author Alice Vincent (aka @noughticulture).

The event will include the opportunity to check out stalls by amazing locally based florists and green-fingered types including Bloom, Forest (East Dulwich), The Nunhead Gardener and Rachel V Hillis.

Tickets are available by online pre-booking only, select your time slot when booking. You may arrive at any time during your chosen 1 hour slot. Please note that tickets are limited to this year’s Houseplant Festival in order to maintain social distancing. As tickets are sold by the hour, the team are encouraging a steady flow of people, and would anticipate your visit to the festival to be around an hour and a half (not including talks or visits to the Garden Café).
Space is limited in the talks to maintain social distancing, so tickets must be pre-booked online. Decide which talks you’ll be most interested in below!
