Specialist Spring Plant Fair
May 8 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Following the huge success of last year’s Specialist Plant Fairs, the Plant Fairs Roadshow returns to Borde Hill Garden this spring with a wide range of locally grown, garden-worthy and unusual plants to inspire keen gardeners.

An exciting line-up of independent UK nurseries from across five counties in the South East (including several RHS exhibitors) will be exhibiting on the Azalea Ring and the Plant Fairs Roadshow’s very own Plant Doctor will be able to answer questions and help visitors find the right plant for the right place. Borde Hill’s Garden Team will also be available during the event to answer questions too.

The spring plant fair is a wonderful time to visit Borde Hill, with a great display of rhododendrons, azaleas and flowering trees, bluebells starting to show their heads above the ground in Warren Wood, tulips en masse and 1,000 Fritillaria orientalis ‘Rubra’ providing a feast for the eyes in the Italian Garden.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Nurseries attending:

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

The Plant Fairs Roadshow returns to Borde Hill Garden with a wide range of locally grown, garden-worthy and unusual plants to inspire keen gardeners.

The Plant Fairs Roadshow is a collective of specialist nurseries who will be setting up their stalls on the Azalea Ring to provide a mouth-watering range of interesting, rare and unusual plants for plant hungry gardeners. This is a great opportunity to buy direct from the growers and to get free advice from the resident ‘Plant Doctor’.

Late summer is a great time to visit the Garden, with roses, miscanthus, berberis, sedums, helenium and, of course, dahlias, all providing sumptuous colour well into autumn.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Nurseries to be confirmed[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13680″ img_size=”large”][vc_btn title=”Booking soon” color=”primary”][vc_column_text]Tickets
