Guess the name of this plant… Hot Lips! …see plants can be fun, or wonderfully surprising in this case. Even though they’re called hot lips we think the flowers look a bit more like a bird, maybe a turkey without the gobbly bit? What do you think? Hot lips or turkey, we’re totally in love and think this is a great addition to any garden, so why not come down to Hoxton Trust Community Garden and see if you think so too?

Is there a friend you haven’t seen for a while? Cold weather putting you off? It didn’t stop these two! The lady on the bench comes here everyday she can to sit on the bench dedicated to her dearly departed and this day she came with a friend. So go on, see an old friend this weekend, you’ll feel better for it and you’ll wonder why it had been so long.

An important part of getting the garden ready for winter is chopping off all those dead bits (for one, it makes it looks nicer) but it also means the plants can focus their energy into growing the parts of it that are still going strong. No one likes wasting energy, so go on, give your beloved green friends a little trim to sort them for spring, they’ll thank you later.

Did you know we have a courtyard? Did you also know we have plant sales in the courtyard on Mondays and ‪Tuesday 9am - 3pm‬… now isn’t that great news! We’ve grown the plants ourselves, so they’re as local as you can get, and we sell them for 50p - £5. Don’t miss out, come on down and bag yourself a plant bargain to take home!

Who’s feeling the cold!? We are and so is the garden, but there’s still lots of reasons to be outside and enjoy London’s green spaces! Our Periwinkle is still letting us enjoy its fan like purple petals and even as some of the petals start to wear and tear we think it’s still looking beautiful, don’t you?

Hello! We’re The Hoxton Trust Community Garden, a little gem just outside the city, looked after by our fantastic organic community gardener Stephen and maintained by our wonderful volunteers. Pictured is our iconic clock tower which we rescued from the Eastern Fever Hospital when it was knocked down to make way for the Homerton University Hosptial. We love nothing more than recycling, reusing and finding a new home for things that would otherwise be forgotten. Who’s with us?
