Where you can meet lots of nurseries all in one place and to find those special plants perfect for your unique garden.
Our 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.
But what makes Plant Hunters' Fairs different and special?
Our 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
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.
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 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
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.
Great for groups:
