Sunday 24th May 2020
Join us for our 2020 Plant Heritage Plant Fair & Artisan Market which is set to be bigger and better than ever before! With specialist nurseries, artisan products, conservation zone, entertainment and children’s activities, we’ll have something for every taste and age. Plant Heritage is a charity dedicated to the conservation of rare garden plants.
Featuring nurseries from near and far with lots of unusual and popular plants for sale, including trees, ferns, grasses, alpines and much more. We’ll have local National Plant Collections and the Suffolk Plant Heritage propagation group on-site, selling rare plants which are not easily found elsewhere. We’ll also be selling a wide range of garden accessories; from antique garden tools to modern sculpture and garden furniture.
This year we’re proud to welcome a number of Garden Societies, Local and National Charities to our Plant Heritage Spring Fair. They’ll be on hand during the day to give specialist advice about maintaining plants, gardens and different types of wildlife.
800 Free Plants
We’ll be giving away 800 plants to the first 800 visitors to claim them. Giving a plant away is the best form of conservation. This years plant is Erigeron glaucus ‘Sennen’. Erigeron is a large genus of daisy-like plants. The species E. glaucus is native to the coastline of West Coast USA, where it grows on beaches, dunes and coastal bluffs. It is moderately low growing with branching stems, and produces rounded spoon-shaped leaves. The cultivar ‘Sennen’ we assume has occurred from Sennen Cove in Cornwall.
The Garden Marquee will host a wide range of workshops throughout the day, including lots of insider tip and tricks. Our Plant Doctors will also be available to offer advice on any gardening topic, identifying your mystery plants and plant problems.
A wide range of exhibitors offering everything from artisan foods and handmade soaps to vintage French collectables and pottery. As well as the wonderful stallholders, we have fantastic entertainment including Chocks Away vintage dancers, live music, birds of prey and children’s activities. There will also be lots of lovely local food and drink, making the fair an ideal day out for gardening clubs, families and similar groups – coaches are very welcome.
Situated in front of the magnificent moated Helmingham Hall, visitors to the plant sale can also enjoy Helmingham Hall’s Grade 1 listed gardens, including dramatic borders, knot and herb gardens, nineteenth-century parterre, ancient deer park and Victorian kitchen garden.
