Plant Hunter’s Fairs plant fair will take place on Sunday, September 3.
This will be their last plant fair of the 2023 season in the area.
Started in 2007 by plantaholics Janet and Martin Blow from Cheshire. The fairs are “special and different because entry costs are kept low”.
Where an entrance fee is charged all the entrance money goes to the garden hosting the event, often Charitable Trusts, raising much-needed funds to help maintain these gardens into the future.
Martin said: “Now’s the time to make the most of the late summer sun and get out and enjoy your garden and Plant Hunters’ Fairs are a great place to pick up some plants to add some late colour to your garden or even to get ahead for next year with bulbs and plants to get planted now for next year’s colour.
“For the first time we have added houseplants to the line up with world-renowned specialists Dibleys Nursery due to make their debut.
“So, whether it’s your garden, conservatory or house that needs a pick-me-up of late summer and autumn flowers and foliage there’s something for you.”
Details about the fair
The plant fair is held in the self-contained Herb Garden by the main car park and entry is just £1.00.
This is redeemable against subsequent entry to the main gardens if you choose to visit these on the day.
Martin added: “If you need some advice to help you choose then there are nursery folk on hand to help, each an expert in their field with years of knowledge and experience, and full of helpful tips, so why not pop in and pick up some wonderful, traditionally grown plants from these family run nurseries.”
There is free parking. The restaurant
