All events are subject to prevailing Covid-19 restrictions. Please follow us for latest updates. Please check event status before travelling.
Our plant fairs are the place to find great value, top quality, traditionally grown plants for every type of garden.
We are pleased to be able to have a great line-up of events for 2021. Last year we were able to run our later fairs in a new, Covid-secure format. We will be continuing in this way in 2021, however there may be times when we have to cancel or reschedule a fair as circumstances require - we will never run a fair when we aren't completely sure it can be done in safe way for all. Some events may require purchase of tickets in advance. So please do check back here regularly and always before travelling to get the latest status for our fairs.

Fall in love with our venues
Our plant fairs are hosted by the most beautiful and most prestigious gardens and countryside locations in our region. They make a wonderful day out full of inspiring ideas for you to take back with you to your own garden.
When a fair takes place within a garden, we arrange half-price (or better) entry to the garden on that day and entry to the fair is included. Others fairs are free or with a small charge or donation that all goes to maintaining the venue
You can pop in for an hour and pick up some plants without breaking the bank, or you can make a day of it, exploring the lovely gardens or just enjoying the open air and peaceful surroundings.
Where an entrance fee is charged all of the entrance money you pay goes to the garden hosting the event, often Charitable Trusts, raising much needed funds to help maintain these lovely gardens into the future.
Be wowed by the plants
All our nurseries are small family-run growers, each with their own specialialities. You'll find RHS medallists, keen plantspeople, designers and artisans for our fairs. Above all, people who love plants and are passionate about what they grow.
Each stall is different with it's own unique specialties. We go for quality and diversity rather than packing in lots of look-alike stalls.
"Great to see old friends, some amazing plant nurseries and go home with lots of plants. Happy, happy, happy!" – Linda on Facebook
"Just got home with a big selection of plants from some very knowledgeable and helpful sellers. Try and get there for the last few hours if you can!" - Janet on Facebook
And for those finishing touches we also have a select number of artisans who design and make garden accessories and artworks.
