Plant Fair at the wonderful Adlington Hall Gardens with a special HALF PRICE entry on the day for entry to the gardens and plant fair of just £3.00. This event has become firmly established in the gardener's calendar as the place to go to get something different and special for your garden. The popular plant fair now in its 12th year will be set against the backdrop of the fabulous historic hall and is surrounded by the beautiful gardens and parkland.
The plant fair has become a magnet for plant lovers from near and far and Plant Hunters' Fairs have pulled out all the stops to get a great line-up of 20 brilliant independent plant nurseries including RHS gold award winners to create a plant lover's paradise.
At Adlington there are the beautiful gardens, woodland walks and parkland to explore. The bluebells should be at their best along with early flowering shrubs and trees. The 2,000 acre Estate contains parkland landscaped in the 18th century in the style of 'Capability Brown' complete with ha-ha. The Lime Avenue dating from 1688 is one of the oldest surviving in Britain and leads to a woodland Wilderness with winding paths, temples, bridges and follies in a rococo manner. A path through the laburnum Arcade leads into the formal Rose Garden, then on to the Maze created in English Yew. The Father Tiber water Garden provides a peaceful haven with its ponds, fountains and water cascade and the newly created parterre provides a colourful addition to the east wing. Other features include a large herbaceous border, rockeries, specimen trees, azaleas and rhododendrons.
Refreshment are available and dogs on leads are welcome. The fair opens at 10am and closes at 4pm on Sunday 10th May. All this is available to roam and explore for the special entry price of just £3.00, that's half standard entry price! (children 15 years and under are free when accompanied by an adult).
