Now in their 15th year, our Plant Hunters' Fairs 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 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.

"We went we got lots of plants we had a fantastic afternoon big thanks to all involved" – Dave on Facebook

"It was a lovely event. Huge thanks to the organisers and team!" – Liz on Facebook
