The Easter and August Bank Holiday Plant Hunters' Fairs at The Dorothy Clive Garden have become a tradition with plant lovers from near and far. 

We only invite the top class nurseries that visitors have come to expect over the last 8 years.

This year we are moving the fair to hard-standing in the centre of the garden around the pavilion - no more trudging up that slope!

If you haven't been to the garden before you're in for a real treat and we know we'll meet again many of our gardening friends who have enjoyed the sheer exuberant flower power of the borders over the eight years the fair has been running. Please drop-by our stall (SpecialPerennials) and say hello.

For this special event RHS partnership garden free entry terms do not apply. Friends  of the garden and season ticket holders admitted free.

Special entry price for this event is 3.50 (half normal price) which  includes the garden and fair. Free parking
