SPRING PLANT FAIR
26th April 2023 10.30am – 4.00pm Broxwood Court, Pembridge
Entrance £6 - to be paid on arrival. (Please bring cash or cheques for entrance, refreshments and purchases)
Discover beautiful, interesting and unusual plants. Meet producers of garden-related products and explore the stunning and rarely opened Broxwood Court garden and arboretum.
Broxwood Court is seldom open to the public, so we are privileged to be allowed use of the gardens and grounds by owners Richard Snead-Cox and Mike and Anne Allen. The gardens were designed and laid out by W.A. Nesfield between 1859 and 1862. Dramatic views to the Black Mountains form the backdrop to this stunning garden which boasts many striking specimen trees, avenues and surprising vistas.
We have invited specialist nurseries, plantsmen and makers of garden-related products to inspire those who wish to find unusual, interesting and pollinating plants early in the season. There will also be advice on trees, wildlife and meadows and a chance to learn about the work of the Cart Shed.
In addition to the stalls there will be demonstrations, delicious light lunches and the opportunity to explore the Broxwood Court grounds.
I sell botanical artwork : original monotype prints, cards and gift tags.
