March 20th is the start of the astronomical Spring so what better day for a World Planting Day than March 21st?

The days are getting longer, the temperatures are rising and it’s time to turn our minds to gardening, both inside and out. Spring has sprung – let the gardening begin! 

Celebrating World Planting Day

Timed in celebration of World Planting Day the Clifton Nureries landscaping team have been busy installing a 'floating garden' at Paddington Central, one of central London's premier business, residential, healthcare and leisure destinations, and only a 10 minute walk from our Clifton Nurseries site in Little Venice.

In collaboration with Paddington Central, Clifton Nurseries have installed a  wildlflower meadow on top of the Pioneer barge on the Grand Union canal, planted up with a range of colourful bulbs.  As the weather warms up (it will do sometime, we promise!), the 4000 bulbs will reach a crescendo of colour before passing the colour baton over to the wildflower meadow plants for their chance to take the spotlight in April and May. 

Planting up the Barge at Paddington Central

Start Gardening

For those in the Paddington Central area, just pop along to the Paddington Pioneer barge to view the floating garden and take advantage of our on-board Clifton Nurseries popup shop selling a select range of Spring plants.  Popup shop opening times are 10am to 4pm from Wednesday March 21st to Thursday March 29th (excluding Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th).  

To enjoy our full Spring plant range visit our beautiful Clifton Nurseries garden centre in Little Venice or our new Surrey branch near Weybridge. And if you would like your own floating garden installed, or any other type of garden, contact our Clifton Nurseries landscaping team. Contact Details
