Great Dorset Plant Fair
On Sunday 3rd May, Athelhampton House will again be playing host to a Specialist Plant Fair, organised by Plant Heritage Dorset Group. This year, there will be wide selection of shrubs, roses, perennials and alpine plants from some of the very best growers and plantsmen in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon. The emphasis is very much on quality plants at very reasonable prices, with tips and advice readily available from the people who actually grow the plants. This Plant Fair is often the best opportunity to pick up something rare or difficult to find without paying a fortune. There will also be plants for acidic, chalk, limestone & clay soils, plus plants for exposed coastal locations and shade. Dorset Wildlife Trust will also be there to advise and answer questions.
The Plant Fair is open from 10am until 3pm. Admission is just £7 and includes access to the grounds of Athelhampton House and the attractive Gardens. The Gardens remain open until 5pm, so visitors can
