- NEWBURGH PRIORY – Sunday 19 April 2020 – CANCELLED
CANCELLED – we will be here again in August though
Newburgh Priory is always the first YORKSHIRE plant fair of the year and again, we have a full compliment of wonderful plant nurseries and garden accessories attending the 2020 event. I love this place – it has a special place in my heart as it was the first venue I booked way back in 2006. A visit at any time of the year is uplifting but Spring promises so much and with over 40 acres of gardens and grounds to explore, you know it will be a great day out for all, including your dog.
The fair takes place on the Northern lawns looking down to the lake and the ...

- NESS HALL – Sunday 31 May 2020 – CANCELLED
This beautiful private garden looks stunning, at any time of the year, and for 2020 we have moved to the end of May to give you all another view of the garden as it moves from its spring colours into early summer. Harriette and her gardener, Alan, have lots of plans for the garden so until I visit them in April, I, too, am in the dark!
This garden is a treasure trove of fabulous plants, shrubs and trees. It has been created by three generations of ladies so has a dreamy, romantic feel to it and Harriette continues to change and improve the gardens. I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
Plant nurseries attending include Lavender and Pinks, Brambling House ...

- WYNYARD HALL – Sunday 19 July 2020 – GOING AHEAD
We held our first plant fair here in 2017 and it was very popular with visitors and gardeners alike. We have been lucky with the weather too.
I’m hoping that the weather will be kind to us again in 2020 as this really is a world class garden. Sir John Hall has lavished over £2million bringing these two large Walled Gardens back to life. Our fair, held within the restored Rose Garden, and overlooking the water features and the impressive Café/Visitor Centre, spills all along the gravelled pathways right up to the Eating Garden beyond and features quality plant growers and nurseries from the North.
You can also buy your tickets on line so giving you “instant” access into the plant fair ...
- COVERHAM ABBEY – Sunday 26 July 2020 – CANCELLED
- SANDON HALL – Sunday 2 August 2020
We make a return to Sandon Hall on Sunday 2 August for our second plant fair there this year so I hope those of you who visited in April will come back and see what wonderful plants are for sale in August. High summer in the gardens is something that I haven’t seen before so I am looking forward to viewing the gardens too.
The delightful 50 acre garden of Sandon Hall will look completely different from their April blooms so come back and explore all over again. You will have a huge selection of plants on sale here from small alpines to the big boys of the herbaceous border and everything in-between. Grant, the head gardener, will be on his ...
- NEWBURGH PRIORY- Bank Holiday Monday 31 August 2020 I love this place!
A wonderful estate to visit at any time of the year but late summer offers you beautiful views, a peaceful lake alive with lots of wild fowl, woodland and water gardens and a short sharp hike up to the top of the hill to look back down onto the Priory and Sutton Bank beyond. With over 40 acres of gardens and grounds to explore, you know it will be a great day out for all, including your dog.
The fair takes place on the North lawns looking down to the lake and the White Horse at Kilburn beyond and is always popular with the individual plant nurseries and specialists who attend.
As always there will be some of the ...
