Forde Abbey Plant Fair Reminder


Don’t forget, this Saturday 24th is the Somerset Group’s first ever Autumn Plant Fair. This is a new venture for us and promises to be an exciting event, set within the inspiring surroundings of Forde Abbey.  Many specialist nurseries and rural craftspeople will be attending.  Our group members will be manning a stand selling plants, explaining what the HPS is about, and showing children how to plant bulbs. We have publicised the event far and wide, and hope to attract a large crowd on the day.

So whether you’re looking for something rare and unusual, or just have a few gaps to fill in your autumn borders, come along and join in the jamboree.  The gates open at 10am and entry costs just £5, which includes admission to Forde Abbey’s gardens (usually £10).  The Undercroft Tearoom serves a range of teas, coffees and cakes, and also provides light lunches from 12 – 2.30pm. The Plant Fair will end at 4pm.

Exhibitors include:

The Forde Abbey Nursery will also be open.
