Spring is here and it’s time to get out in the garden and get planning and planting for the year ahead and where better to get inspiration and some brilliant plants than at this popular event, 17 nurseries and artisans from 8 different counties are booked to attend offering a brilliant choice of plants from alpines to acers and everything in between. At this time of year, the nurseries will come laden with flowering bulbs and shrubs to provide instant colour, but also lots of later flowering plants to get planted now for colour into the summer and beyond. Now’s the time think ahead and plan that dream border for your garden. If you are new to gardening the stall holders are always happy to share their expertise to help you select the best plants for your own unique garden.
