Columbia Road Market 1

August 30, 2009
by the gentle author


Each Sunday morning I visit Columbia Road Flower Market and arrive before eight just as the stallholders are setting up, in order to get the best pick of the plants. With rising expectation, I pass the bleary-eyed clubbers stumbling home down Brick Lane and then arrive at this weekly horticultural paradise. Every week I buy plants for my garden, and each week I will show you what I get and tell you what I paid for it. This morning I bought these two large Chrysanthemums for £10 to bring some freshness to my tired garden now most of the summer’s blooms have been and gone.
