Holkham Plant Fair

Saturday 29th to Sunday 30th September, 10am-5pm

Offering an array of possibilities, autumn is the perfect time to revitalize your garden, so why not join us in Holkham’s beautiful 18th century walled garden for the 2018 plant fair.

With regional nurseries displaying a wide range of plants and other gardening essentials, as well as a variety of artisan stalls, you’ll be sure to find something special. You will also be able to learn some useful tips from Holkham’s gardeners with our special masterclasses.

The beautiful setting of the walled gardens themselves will also rouse gardening enthusiasts and offer a chance to see the progress of the recently planted vineyard, herbaceous borders in the arena of plants with its banks of seasonal blooms, the espaliered fruit trees and the organic vegetable garden.
