Flower Power Picnic Afternoon

Sat, 26/07/2014 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Botanic Garden

Join us for our second picnic afternoon and celebrate the begining of the summer holidays.

Bring a picnic and relax under a shady tree whilst listening to live music from Kismet. Kismet have played in the Garden for us on many occassions and we always look forward to their thoughtful yet uplifting performances. They have been described as 'Balm for the soul"!


Families can listen to stories from the Garden's storyteller Rand Russell. Rand's high energy delivery and full throttle enthusiasm is infectious for all. Come and hear his selection to celebrate the flowers of the Garden.

There will be a chance for families and visitors to try their hand at paper making and decorate their design with petals gathered from the Garden's flowers. Why not grow some seeds to provide flowers well into the autumn on our recycled plant pot assembly line.


Families can take a trail around the Garden to find a whole rainbow of flowers and admire the mini meadow in the Walled Garden and the huge Merton Border, filled with literally thousands of blooms.


Don't forget, there is always a chance to buy teas, coffees, brownies, goodies and local sausages from Tasty Morsels and delicious ice-creams from G&D's.

Drop-in session.  Free with entry to the Garden.
