SPRING PLANT FAIR RETURNS TO HOLME PIERREPONT HALL, NOTTINGHAM
FLOWER POWER FAIRS will be holding their gardeners’ plant fair at Holme Pierrepont Hall on Sunday 24 March from 11am-4pm.
Set in 30 acres of tranquil parkland just beyond the Nottingham Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont Hall is perhaps Nottingham’s best kept secret. The gardens are a delight in the Spring with magical displays of snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, aconites and hellebores. The family also have a passion for decorative early flowering shrubs and interesting topiary.
The plant fair spills out on the lawns in front of the Hall and brings a mouth-watering selection of specialist plant growers from the North and Midlands offering a huge choice of herbaceous plants, shrubs with particular emphasis on colour and shape, climbers, lilies, herbs, heucheras, shade loving plants and ferns. “We will be bursting at the seams,” says organiser, Judy Popley, “with 20 plant nurseries and garden accessories attending and the choice of plants on sale will be astonishing. Don’t forget to bring lots of cash as most small nurseries do not have card facilities.” Many of the nurseries are award winners from RHS shows and offer quality plants, which are not normally found in garden centres and other outlets.
Entry to the fair, gardens and grounds is just £4.00 and parking is free. Refreshments are available throughout the day and dogs are welcome.
