Join Barbed at GROW London this June!

At Barbed we love furniture and artwork and enjoy getting involved with local industry events that are fun, fresh and new, which is exactly what the GROW Garden Fair is: an innovative garden fair bringing together garden (and gardening) enthusiasts and various exhibitors, from furniture and tool shops to gardeners and nurseries.

GROW London: Sister Fair to the Affordable Art Fair

GROW London is organised by the same amazing people who are behind the Affordable Art Fair in London, which displays quirky and inspiring artwork and designs to the thousands of people who visit every year. Last year over 22,000 visitors enjoyed the London based fair with art from 120 British and international artists and galleries. We can only hope GROW London will be as successful as the Affordable Art Fair(s), the success of which grows (pun intended) every year!

GROW London: more than a flower show

What we love about this garden fair is that it doesn't matter whether you prefer to plant flowerbeds and grow vegetables or whether your goal is to make your garden a second home with outdoor furniture and accessories. What matters is that you love your garden, you love unique products and you are looking for something a bit different, be it unusual plants or outdoor artwork.

At GROW London there will also be talks to help you overcome design problems linked to the limited size of a typical London garden, talks on plants for would-be gardeners and even tips on the best edible plants that are easy to grow. The speakers are all talented and knowledgeable garden specialists, from award-winning designer Chris Beardshaw to Matthew Wilson, presenter of Channel 4's 'Landscape Man'. Children are welcome too and will be well cared for with free kids activities led by CBeebies’ horticultural adviser Dawn Isaac, who wrote a book on 101 outdoor activities to do with children.

Come see us at GROW London!

We are big fans of the Affordable Art Fair and have taken part in these amazing events several times ourselves, so it is an honour and a privilege to take part in the first GROW London fair, which we hope will be the first of many.
