PLANT hunters looking for a bargain in the grounds of a beautiful castle are going to be happy as a popular fair returns next month.

On Wednesday, August 2, the popular Plant Hunters' Fair returns to Cholmondeley Castle and Gardens in Cheshire for their eagerly-awaited summer plant fair.

Martin Blow, of Plant Hunters' Fairs said the event at Cholmondeley Castle Garden is always popular with plant lovers.

He said: “It’s such a friendly atmosphere and the nurseries are excited to be returning.

“There will be a brilliant line-up of the best independent plant nurseries including RHS gold medal winners attending with plants to delight all garden lovers.”

“The nurseries will be pulling out all the stops to bring plants that will perk up your patios and beautify your borders.


“There will be something for every style of garden and so many colourful flowers to buy that you’ll need your sunglasses to save being dazzled.

“If you need any help selecting the right plants for your garden the nursery folk are always happy to share their knowledge and experience.

“The lovely gardens at Cholmondeley Castle include a beautiful rose garden with more than 350 roses and the 100-metre-long double herbaceous borders should be looking wonderful.

“There are also many wonderful walks to choose from including Tower Hill and Deer Park Meer.

“This event is such great value, why not bring your friends and family to make a day of it make a day of it in the romantic gardens and grounds of the castle.”

For this special event Cholmondeley Castle are offering a special reduced entry price of just £5 (normally £8.50) to the wonderful gardens and this includes entry to the plant fair as well.
