Details

Plant Hunters’ Fairs will be returning to Donington le Heath 1620s House and Garden on the Saturday 9th May with their popular plant fair. Now in its sixth year the plant fair has quickly gained a reputation as the place to come to find all that is best in garden plants with nurseries coming from near and far and a line-up carefully planned to give the best range and diversity of plants possible.

This year 18 nurseries from 11 different counties are booked to attend offering an unrivalled choice of plants. The plants are lovingly grown by these small specialist nurseries and these enthusiastic plants people are on hand to give honest, straightforward advice on choosing and growing the right plants for your garden. At this time of year, the nurseries will come laden with early flowering perennials and shrubs to provide instant colour, but also lots of later flowering plants to get planted now for colour into the summer and beyond. Now’s the time to think ahead and plan that dream border for your garden. There will also be a great range of hand-made plant supports available from Staffordshire’s Artisan Plant Supports.

Entry to the plant fair and gardens is just £1.00 with the entrance fee going directly for the benefit of the house and garden. Entry to the Manor House is optional at normal rates. The plant fair runs from 10am-4pm on Saturday 9th May.
