We are thrilled to hold our Plant Fairs at the wonderful Ness Botanic Gardens again this year. We shall be in the lovely, sheltered site in the herb garden with the entrance in the corner of the right-hand (as you come into the venue) car park  - look out for the A-boards directing you from visitor centre entrance!

The gardens have so much to see and explore whatever the weather and Ness has garden trails to suit all ages and abilities!

We have lots of your favourite nurseries returning plus some new comers to meet for the first time at this venue.
