Rare Plant Fair - 5th May 2013

A sunny day (rare enough right now, let's be honest) greeted our visitors to this year's Rare Plant Fair held at the Gardens on May 5th.

Much trade in rare and beautiful plants was done in this happy combination of Spring atmosphere and magnificent historic surroundings (Click on the pictures to view them full size):

The Gardens (after a short delay due to the late arrival of Spring this year) erupted with new and fresh beauty. Everywhere you looked gave a fresh feast for the senses:

A very happy and successful event was had by all, puchasers were happy with their items, and sellers reported a healthier than usual sales-to-advice ratio! 

A big thank you goes to our friends and exhibitors at the Rare Plant Fair for helping to make this event such fun yet again.

The biggest thanks of all must go to our visitors for their loyal support in helping us to keep these gardens alive for the benefit of both present and future generations. If you have not visited us yet, don't hesitate. The gardens have to been seen 'in the flesh colour and scent' to be fully appreciated: These pictures cannot do the place full justice.

Once again without the unstinting practical support of our volunteers, this event would not have taken place at all. Why not join them? If you are tempted to become a volunteer, please click on our volunteer page. For further details contact Sue Brain on 0121 749 4100. You won't regret it, and you'll be helping to make a difference that will be appreciated for generations to come!
