A great day at Sion Hill Hall on Sunday 16 June

Thrilled to say that we beat the weather (well almost) on Sunday 16 June.  Having had one of the wettest weeks on record for June, and with Plan B with the car parking and site of the plant fair, we welcomed lots of regulars and new visitors to the Flower Power Fair at Sion Hill Hall on Sunday 16 June.

Early morning sunshine brought smiles to us all as the plant nurseries and garden accessories arrived to set up their stalls and we had some very “early birds” arriving to get the best plants!

However, the rain caught us all out around midday with a heavy shower and everyone dashed for cover … and some delicious cakes in the tea room … even the peacocks hid.  

But once the rain disappeared, we had a lovely warm afternoon and everyone left laden down with bio-degradable bags full of wonderful plants.

A huge thank you to Michael Mallaby of Sion Hill Hall and his staff for all their hard work and of course to the wonderful plantsmen and women who make these fairs possible, and so enjoyable.  Gatekeeper Nurseries, Ribblesdale Nurseries, Garden Blooms, Plantazia, Dark Star Plants, Fayrefield Horticulture & Design, The Quiet Corner, Plantazia, Gardening with Wildlife and Alfresco.

A glorious garden to wander through too and of course the peacocks were on their best behaviour, displaying for most of the day, almost to order!
