I am an organiser of ‘specialist’ plant fairs throughout the North of England enabling serious plant enthusiasts and keen gardeners to meet up with growers and nurserymen to buy the latest in plants and shrubs as well as old favourites that have been around a long time but increasingly difficult to buy from conventional garden centres. All the growers offer quality plants, grown in the UK, and usually propagated and nurtured by themselves. Many of them offer unusual plants, not normally seen elsewhere, and all of them are knowledgeable gardeners. So don’t be shy, ask them everything you need to know; they are always pleased to share their knowledge and tips. The fairs takes place at amazing venues – usually with a wonderful garden to wander through – which also helps to give us all inspiration. There are usually cafes or tea rooms to enjoy a little rest before you go around the stands again.
Flower Power Fairs brings together enthusiastic plant growers from all over the North of England and introduces them to you, the keen gardener, the beginner, the "looking for something special" gardener or those of you looking for something unusual, rare, quirky, but above all, good quality, healthy plants.
I thought this list of our Plant Fairs might be useful as they are spread throughout the year and throughout the North of England. Print a copy and keep it handy and then come and meet me at any of the fairs I organise. I would love to meet you.
