Following the huge success of last year’s Specialist Plant Fairs, 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.
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, while Head of Horticulture, Harry Baldwin, will be giving an informal talk, ‘The Hidden Stories of Trees and Shrubs’, in the Marquee at 11am and 2pm. Visitors can drop in to hear the fascinating stories behind some of the Garden’s rarest and most exotic trees and shrubs, many grown from seeds collected by the great plant hunters.
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.
