Now in its13th year, our August Bank Holiday Plant Hunters' Fair at The Dorothy Clive Garden have become a tradition with plant lovers from near and far.

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 eleven years the fairs have been running.

In late summer the herbaceous borders are aflame with colour. The large display glasshouse offers a touch of the tropics at all times.

At all times the garden is place to relax with plenty of secluded places and lots of seats.

The tearooms will be serving a limited range of home-cooked food and drinks to eat outside.

Here are some lovely photo albums from these events: Easter or August
