If you dream of turning your flat into a plant-filled oasis but tend to kill them all after about two weeks, or if you’re a greenery fanatic who wants to learn more about plants, you’ll want to check out Urban Jungle East this summer. Green Rooms Market has teamed up with Old Spitalfields Market for this ode to all things botanical to the heart of East London. For two days, you’ll be able to drop by the space to shop plants, learn how to care for them and get involved in their programme of workshops.

There’ll be two free talks that dive into how to keep your plants happy – a practical discussion on the most common houseplant problems with the Plant Rescuer and top tips on plant care from pros Alice & Maddie Bailey – so you’ll leave a capable plant parent. And you can get your hands dirty with workshops like terrarium building by London Terrariums, plant pot making with Salt Studios and botanical cyanotype printing with Sally Gunnet.
