HOLKER HALL & GARDENS, home of Lord and Lady Cavendish, plays host to our first Cumbrian plant fair of 2017 on Easter Sunday 16 April.
I’m delighted to say that we shall be holding two plant fairs at Holker Hall again this season, the first one being on 16 April and the second on the August Bank Holiday (27 August). However I am sad to hear that they will no longer be holding their very popular Holker Hall Garden Festival any more. It was the best show in the North of England once.
We had a brilliant plant fair here last April and I hope you will again be tempted to come along and see what treasures are on sale for you this year. Tinnisburn Plants pops over the Scottish border to join us so you can be assured her plants will survive in your gardens and I’m delighted to confirm that Helen will be with us for both the fairs in 2017 as will Northern Ark Nursery’s organically grown plants from Northumberland.
WE OPEN EARLIER THAN USUAL …. 10.30am …. and running alongside the plant fair will also be their Producer’s Market offering Cumbrian food and drink and admission is free. See you on Easter Sunday. Don’t forget to bring plenty of cash because most nurseries are small businesses and don’t have card facilities.
