Welcome to Plant Hunters' Fairs

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.

You can find our new ticket links page here: Buy Tickets

Coming to a Plant Hunters' Fair - then be prepared:

  • please bring your own bags and pack your own purchases if possible
  • bring contactless cards and also cash as some traders can't take cards and sometimes the phone signal let us down
  • masks will be required to use indoor facilities at the venue
  • fairs are totally in the open air so wear appropriate footwear and pack a brolly or mac

But most of all be prepared to be wowed by the plants and buy far more than you planned!

Date Changes and cancellations:

Carsington Water plant fairs have both been cancelled this year - we hope to be back in 2022

Due to the Covid-19 situation, together with Middleton Hall, we have decided to cancel the March plant fair there. The good news is that we have added an extra date at Middleton on Sat 21 August

We have had to cancel our March plant fair at Capesthorne Hall, the good news is we are back there on Sunday 15 August

Our Good Friday fair at Whittington Castle has been cancelled. We still have our extra date on Sunday 4 July at this historic venue to look forward to.

We have rescheduled our Easter plant fair at Bodenham Arboretum to the new date of Saturday 15 May

We have also rescheduled the Easter fair at Dorothy Clive Garden to Friday 21 & Saturday 22 May. Tickets are on sale now.

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.
