I moved to Battersea in August 2012, and since then have been eagerly wanting to explore my neighbourhood and all of the wonderful hidden gems of this south west London Suburb.
Ever since moving here I’ve noticed this little hidden sign on the side of Battersea Park Road yet never ventured in…until today. The Battersea Flower station is a neighbourhood garden centre, hidden behind some creaky looking gates behind the railway tracks. I was delighted when I went in. There was a small but delicate selection of roses and fancy flowers on display, as well as some decorative trees that would look nice on your garden patio or outside your front door. It’s a definite stop over, for someone who’s just moved into the neighbourhood, owns the place and has some outdoor space that is looking a little bland. Prices were a little high, as with all of these independently run places…but I wonder if you could strike up some bargaining here if need be.
On a vanity note, I did notice some pretty lights decorating the alley way part of this ‘station’ which would probably be a wonderland to walk through when it gets darker out.
Oh, and at the start of the Christmas season this place is decked out with sparkly lights and they sell Christmas trees!
