What makes Plant Hunters' Fairs different and special?

Great locations:

Our fairs are hosted by the most beautiful and most prestigious gardens in our region and we have arranged reduced rates at most. These fairs make a wonderful day out full of inspiring ideas you take back with you to your own garden .

Click here to see where we will be in 2016

Great value:

Entry prices are low (or even free) so you can pop in for an hour and pick up some plants without breaking the bank.

We don't make money from your entrance fees. Where an entrance fee is charged all of the entrance money goes to the garden hosting the event, often Charitable Trusts, raising much needed funds to help maintain these lovely gardens into the future.

Great plants:

All our nurseries are proper growers and able to give accurate information based on their real experience: you won't find fly-by-nights and supermarket plants. You will find RHS medallists and National Collection Holders, keen plantspeople, designers and artisans. Above all people who love plants and are passionate about what they grow.

You can read articles by our nurseryfolk in our newsletters.

Great choice:

Every line up of nurseries is selected and planned to ensure each stall is different with it's own unique specialty. We go for quality and diversity rather than packing in lots of look-alike stalls. Finding top-quality nurseries is not easy, we invest a lot of time and effort in selecting the best from the rest.

Great for groups:

If you organise days out for your group click here for special arrangements we can offer to make your day complete.

Our 2016 leaflet will be available soon. If you would like a stock for your venue or club please contact Janet.

Details may change due to unforeseen circumstances. Details of any late changes will advised on this website and on twitter
