April 

A return to Yorkshire.  Over 20 stands will be coming to Newburgh Priory and I am hoping the weather will be kind to us.  As always, a huge selection and diversity of plants will be on offer, together with some great garden accessories.  Good to welcome back Summerfield Nursery.  Poor Phil has been very poorly over the past year with open heart bypasses and complications so I’m thrilled he’s coming back to join us.  Home made delights can be purchased in the café and I’m so looking forward to seeing you all again.Sunday 24 April  Sandon Hall
Sandon, Staffs ST18 0DL
Tickets on the gate:  £4.00 (card or cash) or online + booking fee
Children free.  Dogs not allowed in the gardens
Open from 11.00am – 4.00pm.

At the end of April we shall be visiting lovely Sandon Hall again.  The Spring fair will be held at the front of the House with an option for you to visit the gardens after you’ve been to the fair.  Catering will be provided on the lawns beside the car park.
 
An exciting collection of Midlands plant nurseries will be attending and I’m delighted to welcome back the Staffordshire Hardy Plant Society who always have a lively stand. Nurseries include Robert Barlow Hostas and shade lovers, Stannards Plants, Linda Scott Hardy Geraniums, Penmere Plants, Morton Nurseries and Prized Perennials.

May

Three quality plant fairs in May, commencing with Wynyard Hall on Sunday 15 May.  This is always a very popular fair so I recommend you come early (we open at 10am for this fair) and take advantage of the Farmer’s Market held in the car park too.  Tickets will be on sale online (price to be confirmed) and also on the gate on arrival.  Dogs welcome.
 
We have changed the dates for Sion Hill Hall to May so giving you a different prospective of the gardens. So we shall be there on Sunday 22 May.  No dogs in the gardens please.
 
On the last Sunday in May (usually the Bank holiday but as you know the Bank Holiday has moved to June for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee) we shall be returning to beautiful Rode Hall in Cheshire.   So make a note of the date, as we’re here on a Sunday rather than a Bank Holiday Monday.  Sunday 29 May.  The admission gives access to the gardens, grounds and plant fair and homemade food is available in the Coach House café. 
 
All the fairs up to the end of June are fully booked and I’m sure you will be delighted with the stalls and the plants they have to offer you. 
 
All the details can be found on my website: www.flowerpowerfairs.co.uk and you can download a calendar of all the events too.
 
Apart from Wynyard Hall, all the events open from 11.00am – 4.00pm.
