Green & Gorgeous - March -111

Rachel is a flower farmer and floral designer who has been involved in horticulture for over 25 years. Her naturalistic style is inspired by the changing seasons and surrounding countryside, as illustrated in her book ‘The Flower Book’. Her approach to teaching is always immersive and hands on, outdoors in the garden and always include practical sessions in propagation, harvesting and arranging.

Rachel and her partner Ashley grow a wide range of flowers, vegetables and foliage on six acres of land next to the River Thames. They run a wide range of courses and offer a vibrant wedding design service, both anchored in the abundance of their cutting gardens.


It is with great regret that Upper Street Events has taken the decision that, as a result of the evolving Covid-19 situation, it is no longer possible for us to hold The Country Living Spring Fair 2020 (23 – 26 April, Alexandra Palace).

We have been following UK Government guidelines and working advice from Public Health England and other organisations as the situation has evolved and, given the latest announcements with regards to mass gatherings, it is now with much sadness that we have taken the decision to cancel the event.  The safety and wellbeing of our staff, exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors is of the upmost importance to us, and the protection and prevention of harm to all involved is vital.

Ticket holders, exhibitors and sponsors will be contacted directly within the next 14 days with regards to transferring bookings or refunds as required.

We are sincerely sorry that we have had to take this incredibly difficult course of action and thank you for bearing with us at this uncertain time.

Please take care and we hope to invite you back to events later in the year.
