Rare Plant Fair at The Bishop’s Palace
The Bishop’s Palace & Gardens in Wells, Somerset has announced it will be holding its autumn Rare Plant Fair on 13th September.
The event will be run in association with Rare Plant Fairs, manged by Ian and Teresa Moss, who are experts in bringing brilliantly curated selections of nurseries to stunning venues across the South West.
The events have proved to be extremely popular over the past few years, so this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the day will have a few changes to ensure everyone’s safety.
Admission to the event will be by advance ticket only (£7 per adults). Palace passholders will have free entry, but must book in advance. The tickets will have hourly allocated slots throughout the day, in order to spread the number of visitors. The nursery stalls will be laid out in a new arrangement with plenty of space to protect both the nursery owners and visitors to the event.
The nurseries attending are carefully selected by Ian and Teresa from Rare Plant Fairs to ensure that they are genuine growers who produce most or all of the plants that they sell themselves.
The range is chosen so that they can offer the widest possible variety of plants to visitors, including perennials, shrubs and trees, alpines, bulbs and exotic plants.
All of the nursery owners are experts in the plants that they grow and are happy to offer the advice that you need to select and grow the right plants for your garden.
The event is held entirely outdoors, but tickets for the fair include entrance to the Medieval Palace and 14 acres of RHS partner gardens and can be booked on The Bishop’s Palace website.
