Plant Fairs 2015

About Plant Hunters' Fairs

Plant Fairs are great places to see lots of nurseries all in one place and to find those special plants perfect for your unique garden.

Plant Hunters' Fairs make a great value and inspiring day out - browse the plants, get some advice, enjoy a brilliant garden and perhaps lunch at a lovely garden restaurant or tearoom.

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

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

We were featured as a great place to buy plants on the BBC series Great British Garden Revival: Click here to view an excerpt from the show.

Plant Hunters' Fairs are unique because:

All our nurseries are proper growers and able to give accurate information based on their real experience. You can inspect our complete range of nurseries: you won't find market traders and fly-by-nights. You will find RHS medalists and National Collection Holders, keen plantspeople, designers and artisans.

Every line up of nurseries is selected and planned to ensure each stall is different with it's own unique specialty.

We had plants from 15 Plant Heritage National Collections at our plant fairs in 2014.

Plant Hunters' Fairs are hosted by the most beautiful and most prestigious gardens in our region and we have arranged reduced rates at most. Click here to see where we will be in 2015

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.
