  • WYNYARD HALL May Plant Fair – CANCELLED SORRY BUT AGAIN WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THIS EVENT DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS. We hope to be here on our usual date in July – Sunday 19 July.
  • STONE TOWN CENTRE, STAFFORDSHIRE – Saturday 9 May CANCELLED CANCELLED due to the Coronavirus. We hope to be here next year.
  • NEWBURGH PRIORY – Sunday 19 April 2020 – CANCELLED 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 White Horse at Kilburn beyond and is always popular with the individual plant nurseries and specialists who attend. Admission £4.00 includes gardens, grounds, woods and plant fair. Children free. Dogs welcome. Newburgh Priory, Coxwold, North Yorkshire YO61 4AS
  • KEEP ON CHECKING THE WEBSITE – Update 2 April KEEP ON CHECKING THE         WEBSITE - Update 2 April Dear friends The Coronavirus and events Sadly I have now had to cancel the first SIX plant fairs of the 2020 season. These are Holme Pierrepont Plant Fair, Sandon Hall Plant Fair, Newburgh Priory Plant Fair, Stone Plant Fair, Wynyard Hall (May) Plant Fair and Rode Hall Bank Holiday Plant Fair have all been cancelled. But we shall be back at Wynyard Hall in July and also back at Newburgh Priory in August so you will still be able to visit these magical gardens and buy your plants from the plant nurseries you all know and trust. Please bear with us. The plant nurseries are desperate to get out and about and share their wonderful plants with you. They are all self employed so you can imagine that with the cancellation of plant fairs, the bigger flower shows like Harrogate, Chelsea and Chatsworth and cancellation of all gardening talks, they are now really in a bad place. To this end I am desperate to get these fairs on the road but I have to follow the guidelines set down by the Government and Public Health. So let’s hope that the virus will begin to diminish so that we can get back to normal. Please keep in touch either via the website, my Facebook page (flowerpowerfairs), Twitter, Instagram or via phone/text 07730 859441. Take care and keep on gardening.
  • Exciting new venues for the 2020 Plant Fairs Exciting new venues for the 2020 Plant Fairs The plant fairs are nearly all full now and I’m delighted with the range and depth of quality plant nurseries who want to join Flower Power Fairs.   We shall be back at the charming Worsall Hall near Yarm for our “bi-annual” visit there.  The fair will be taking place in June next year so you will see the gardens slightly earlier than usual. We shall also be returning to Constable Burton Hall in Wensleydale next year after a very successful plant fair there this July and I have a brand new garden to show you (and great plant fair) at Ganton Hall, Ganton not too far away from Scarborough. Two plant fairs at Newburgh Priory, with two at Sandon Hall in Staffordshire but we won’t be returning to Holker Hall in Cumbria.  A change in management. We’ve moved Ness Hall Plant Fair to the end of May as the first Spring Bank Holiday is a little confusing this year with VE Day, Friday 8 May, and replacing the Monday Bank Holiday date. A new venture for Flower Power is to hold a plant fair in the lovely market town of Stone, Staffordshire. I was approached by the Council to hold a fair so I do hope you will all come along and support this new event. So lots of work goes on behind the scenes before Flower Power Fairs opens for 2020 at the delightful Holme Pierrepont Hall in Nottingham. Full dates and venues are now on the Plant Fair Calendar which you can download and keep.   And for those of you who have been to the fairs in 2019, thank you for your support and see you next year.
