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.


Because of the success in helping manage crowding in fairs and tearooms, some venues have decided to ticket events.

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

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

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. Please do check back here regularly and always before travelling to get the latest status for our fairs.

  • Always check with our website before coming to a fair to see the latest event status
  • For fairs with timed arrival slots, please try not to arrive early.
  • Be considerate and give others 2m space in fair - we are not out of the woods yet! If a stall is busy stand back and wait your turn, or come back to it later
  • 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 lets us down
  • Masks may still be required to use indoor facilities at a venue - see venue websites for guidance
  • Fairs are totally in the open air and it has been known to be wet and windy in Britain in the plant fair season ;-) 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!

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 have a small charge or donation that all goes to maintaining the venue. We do not take any of the entrance fees - it all goes to the venues.

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.

Be wowed by the plants

All our nurseries are small family-run growers, each with their own specialities. You'll find RHS medalists and keen plants people at 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.
