Holkham Hall plant fair this weekend




The beautiful 18th century walled gardens at Holkham Hall will be the perfect setting for the annual plant fair this weekend.

It will be the ideal opportunity for gardening enthusiasts to plan and get ideas for revitalising their outdoor spaces for autumn.

Nurseries from across the region will be on site displaying a wide range of plants and other gardening essentials as well as a variety of artisan stalls with gift ideas.

At 11am each day, Jim Paine, from Walnut Tree Garden Nursery will present a masterclass on the subject 'Gardening in a climate changing world'.

He will explore the science behind climate change, the scale of the emergency facing us and how gardeners can respond, both in order to achieve a beautiful garden in a much changed climate but also how gardeners can contribute to the national response.

Visitors will also be able to see the progress on the hall's restoration project involving the Thomas Messenger building, the Samuel Wyatt vinery, the vineyard, herbaceous borders and the ornamental garden.
