Events in 2020
We just love going out and about around the county attending Plant Fayres, meeting new and old customers, showing keen gardeners the best of what we produce. This also enables us to meet and have a chat with other growers, swapping stories as well as plants.
Redgrave and Lopham Fen IP22 2HX
April 19th 10am-3pm
Always our first trip out of the year and somehow the organisers always manage to arrange for the weather to be decent. (Lets hope i havent put a jinx on it for this year!) Situated amongst the trees inside the nature reserve you will find 20 or so nurseries in attendance plus other garden related stalls. A walk around the Fen followed by a well deserved cup of tea and a slice of cake is a must after first buying some plants.
Glemham Hall Garden and Artisan Market IP13 0BT
April 26th 9.00am-3.00pm
***NEW NEW NEW*** BRAND NEW FOR 2020..!! The Halesworth event has now moved to a much larger and grander site at Glemham Hall. Come along and support this new event with 70 - 100 plant stalls and garden related item stands, with the added bonus of a small food village too!
SWAGG @ Wyken Hall IP31 2DW
April 26th 10am-4pm
The first ever event we attended way back in 2008 and one we are always pleased to support.
Lord and Lady Carlisle open the gates to their garden and very kindly allow us to set up on the lawns of their lovely home which makes a great backdrop to the event.
Sudbury Market Place in aid of The Quay Theatre.
May 8th 10am-4pm Bank Holiday Friday!!!!
Always a very interesting one to set-up at, as the event takes place in the Market Place and is completely open to the public. So the really keen customers are always taking a peek into the van as soon as we arrive to grab the best plants!
Bungay Garden Market NR35 1NA
May 17th 10am-5.00pm
This will be our third appearance at this extremely popular event.
Karl gets so busy here I had to go along last year to help him and i could see why, the high street is overflowing with an amazing array of plants and garden related items! An absolutely fantastic sight.
White House Farm Plant Fair (Norwich) NR7 8SB
May 23rd 10am-4.30pm
This will be our fourth appearance at this event. A large selection of local plant nurseries will be in attendance at this popular farm along with Radio Norfolk's gardening team.
Plant Heritage @ Helmingham Hall IP14 6EF
May 24th and Sept 20th 10am-4pm
The event in May is without doubt the most stressful but our most favourite. The crowds just pour into the grounds of Helmingham Hall and we rarely get a chance to sit down during the whole day! 50+ nurseries and garden related stalls all laid out in front of the glorious Hall and a walk around the garden is a must. This is our biggest shop window so its vital i get the plants looking their absolute best and make sure the display is perfect.
Mendlesham Street Fayre
May 25th 12pm-5.30pm
This is our nearest event to home, with Mendlesham being right on our doorstep its a great way of advertising our business to local people.. Last year was a great occasion including a street procession
with May Queen, bands, stalls, sideshows, bouncy castle and other entertainment. This year they are celebrating 40 years of the Street Fair.
Creake Abbey Plant Fair NR21 9LF May 30th 10am-4.00pm
Now in its thirteenth year, the 2020 Plant Lovers’ Day will welcome over 30 specialist plant nurseries. A stunning array of annuals, perennials, shrubs, grasses, trees and succulents will be available for gardening enthusiasts from across the county to enjoy.
Fullers Mill (nr West Stow) IP28 6HD
July 26th 10am-4pm
This event is in the most picturesque setting, tucked away on the edge of Thetford Forest in the grounds of an old watermill. The gardens are set out in a most unique way with big drifts of plants following the path of the stream into various ponds. A very select group of nurseries are invited to this event which is still young but growing in popularity every year.
