Happy plant hunting at Hodnet Hall

Plant Hunters’ Fairs return to the wonderful Hodnet Hall Gardens on Saturday, June 2, and Sunday, June 3, for what has become the most spectacular summer plant event in the area with thousands of plants from some of the country’s most respected nurseries.

Martin Blow of Plant Hunters’ Fairs said:

“We have 23 nurseries and artisans coming along from as far afield as Cornwall, Lincolnshire and Berwickshire to make this a very special day out for all garden lovers. And with 63 acres of spectacular gardens to explore, the £3.50 entry fee makes a great value day out.

“The garden will be ablaze with colour with flowering trees and shrubs, roses and peonies, herbaceous borders, woodland plants, walled vegetable and cutting garden, wildflower meadow and woods, lakes and streams to inspire you. The garden is steeped in history and reflects the passion for plants of the current owners. There are many picturesque walks to take of varying lengths and when you’ve finished, there’s always the tearoom to retreat to!

“ All this is available to roam and explore for the special event entry price of just £3.50 and that includes the plant fair. That’s half the standard entry price (children under 15 free for this special event only). The fair opens at 10am and closes at 5pm each day.”

The garden is off the A53 and A442 at Hodnet TF9 3NN.
