Hidden between the Union Canal and the St Mark's Gate entrance of Victoria Park, this social enterprise garden centre is staffed by a team of horticulturalists and garden designers who are intent on improving the environment for those living in the East End. They work with local groups to transform little pockets of public space and go out into local schools to raise gardening awareness. If you're interested in improving your own skills or contributing to community projects, you can sign up for one of its gardening classes which include learning how to plant and raise a vegetable patch. Best-sellers include strawberries and herbs as well as organic compost.

Lovely little place. Great selection and excellent service. Lots of advise on what will grow best in the space you have and super helpful.
Love what the team here do - not only selling excellent plants for our gardens (and promoting front gardens) but also getting involved in the local community. I also am very grateful for their horticultural knowledge!
Very helpful staff, a little oasis along the canal and they have everything I need to my our balcony a little herb and flower place - for more than decent prices! :)
