On Saturday 27th April Plant Hunters’ Fairs return to Sugnall Walled Garden giving garden lovers a chance to explore this working 18th Century kitchen garden in spring. Visitors to the plant fair and garden can also roam the fragrant bluebell woods all for the special entry price of just £1.
Martin Blow of Plant Hunters’ Fairs said “We are really excited to be here in spring with many of our favourite participating nurseries plus some that are new to the venue including Shady Plants from Gloucstershire, Wildegoose Nursery from Shropshire with a brilliant collection of violets,
John Gillies with rare and desirable shrubs and Woodland Barn with azealeas, daphnes and rhododendrons. Roseland House will be travelling all the way from Cornwall with an impressive range of climbers including rambling roses and plants from their National Collection of Clematis. With entry to the garden, woods and fair just £1 we think this must be one of the best value days out around.”
The garden has an amazing collection of heritage fruit trees and it is hoped that the early blossom will be open. For a small extra charge (£2 adults, under 16 free) you can take a guided tour uncovering the history of the garden, estate and the people who have lived there.
Open 10am until 4pm and the tearoom will be serving home-made fare including, tea and cake at just £2.50 per person. The Walled Garden is on the B5026 from Eccleshall – watch out for the signs. There is ample free parking.
