Packed with inspiration and ideas for the late summer planting we will be hosting Forde Abbey’s Plant and Gardening Fair on Saturday 7th September.

We have some fantastic specialist nurseries from the Southwest selling plants and excellent craftsmen with brilliant and beautiful gardening sundries from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM. Many of our plant stalls are back by popular demand, but there will also be some new ones this year.

The growers are happy to chat about their plants and are happy to offer their expertise and share their enthusiasm, so do come along to see what you can add to your own garden for a splash of colour this spring – or just admire the beautiful plants on show!

The Plant Fair takes place at the beginning of our popular Dahlia display, a lovely time to see the garden transforming into its autumn colours and bursting herbaceous borders. The Coffee Shop will be open throughout the day serving hot drinks, light bites and homemade cakes. Our award winning Gift Shop with some fantastic souvenirs will also be open, Eeles Pottery will be selling and showcasing some beautiful pottery too.

Our in house Plant Nursery is also open from 10.30am – 3.00pm and it is fully stocked with Dahlias and a diverse range of herbaceous perennials, many rare and unusual. All the plants in our nursery are grown at the Abbey.

A reduced entry fee of £7.50 to the Plant & Gardening Fair, including admission to Forde Abbey’s 30 acre gardens.

Parking is free. Last Entry to the gardens at 3:00pm.

(The admission fee applies to all visitors including children over 15yrs)
