Created by Red Room Poetry, New Shoots celebrates and cultivates poems inspired by plants and place.

The New Shoots Poetry Anthology gathers 163 poems from 105 poets across the world. The word ‘anthology’ literally means ‘a gathering of flowers’, in every sense, this anthology can be seen as a bouquet, arranged with poetic blooms in all colours, moods and shapes.

We've continued to keep the gates to the garden open for new poetic blooms from the public. We'd love to have your plant-inspired poems if you'd like to gift them to the garden. 

Public submissions appear in the New Shoots digital depository
