Sunday 7th July
HPS Somerset Summer Plant Fair
Lower Severalls Garden, Crewkerne, TA18 7NX
10am – 4pm
Admission: £3.50 for all HPS members (£4 for non-members)
The garden at Lower Severalls is set in front of a beautiful hamstone 17th century farmhouse, with a formal front garden and borders full of colourful herbaceous perennials and herbs. It has been owned by the Pring family for 90 years and has featured in Gardens Illustrated.
The stalls at the Summer Plant Fair will be arranged outside the grounds this year, leaving the garden unencumbered for everyone to enjoy. Mary, who now runs a B&B in the farmhouse, will be providing us with her homemade cakes, tea, coffee and elderflower cordial.
The garden is home to CB Plants, a traditional nursery run by Catherine Bond, specialising in unusual hardy perennials, wild flowers and cottage garden favourites. All the plants are grown in peat-free compost and many are of benefit to wildlife, being nectar-rich and great for attracting pollinating insects.
This promises to be a great day out, so come and pick up a treasure or two.
