The Chiswick Flower Market is set to return to the High Road on Sunday 2 May.

It will be taking place from 9.30am to 3pm in Old Market Place, in front of the George IV pub. The hope is there will be no further requirements to cancel the event due to health reasons and the market will become a fixture on the first Sunday of each month.

The reopening will see traders selling cut flowers, bedding plants, bulbs for spring planting, houseplants, dried flowers, bouquets and arrangements.

They will include nursery owners such as Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants. The multi gold award winners at the Chelsea Flower Show are retiring from Chelsea this year because it has been moved to September, so they will be selling their home-produced herbaceous perennials in Chiswick instead.

Other sellers who will be at the market include Columbia Road traders Steve Burridge, Jill Perkins, Steve Hudson and London House Plants.

West London growers include The Kew Plantsman, specialising in rare and unusual plants. Many of the plants on sale will have come from British growers, grown peat free at nurseries in the south east of England.

In the mix will be stalls selling Micro foods; Aubrey’s Strawberries, herbs grown in from Pepperpot nursery and children’s planting kits from Herboo.

Alongside the array of cut flowers and live plants there will also be stalls selling plants pots and accessories.

Visitors can buy a Chiswick Flower Market branded jute bag to carry their plants home or if they live locally they can take advantage of free delivery by bike.

The market is run by volunteers and all profits go towards regenerating the economy of Chiswick High Road.
