A Flower Garden For the Community, Cultour Magazine
Battersea Flower Station is unique because it shows other garden centers and businesses that you don’t necessarily have to operate worldwide to be successful. It is true that they get some products from over the borders and thus not everything about their company is local, but this is only in the interest of providing the best material to their clients. The combination of expertise in field and keeping the business as local as possible together with a very approachable relation to the clients caused Battersea Flower Station to quickly rise to the top of the London garden centers.

All the team at Battersea Flower Station are paid at least Living Wage. This is really important to John in keeping the team valued and cherished.

Plant Magic in Wandsworth, Lunchboxtravels.com
I would choose Battersea Flower Station over Columbia Market any day. Just a short 15 minute walk from Clapham Junction Station, Wandsworth hides it’s garden centre running the length of maybe the most magical alleyway in London. With a range of house plants, shrubs, cacti & pots make no mistake this is certainly not an East End market. Instead once you’ve entered through the gate you’re transported on a peaceful adventure which you are free to roam.

A Guide to Battersea, Onthegrid.city
The outside doesn’t quite prepare you for this surprising magical oasis wedged between two cafés off a busy road. This doesn’t seem like a garden centre / florist, as much as a small public garden to escape to if Battersea Park is too far. An independent and quirky place run by friendly, knowledgeable staff (who clearly love the place). They stock a wide range of indoor and outdoor plants, along with accessories, vintage pots and gifts. They offer a free window box planting service for those of us in tiny London flats, and offer a delivery service of plants and flowers. See more Battersea Tips here.
