Events

The severe winters a few years ago proved how hardy the majority of the plants we grow are. Many have been in cultivation for years and we are proud to still have many old varieties available as well as lots of new selections. Some of these plants have interesting histories, which to us is all part of the interest of growing plants.
We expect to attend the following – mainly outdoor events – during 2021, subject to regulations at the time of each event;
  • Sunday 2nd May – Kirkcudbright Spring Plant Fair
  • Sunday 9th May – Gresgarth Hall, Lancashire
  • Sunday 23rd May – Hutton-in-the-Forest
  • Friday, Saturday and Sunday June 4th – 6th – Plant Fair at Threave Gardens
  • Sunday 13th June – Gresgarth Hall, Lancashire
  • Sunday 20th June – Dalemain House Plant Fair
