The Fairs will take place at the National Memorial Arboretum this summer

For a tenth successive year the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire will host a series of Plant Hunters’ Fairs with at least 14 specialist nurseries offering a wide array of plants for purchase.

The fairs will take place along Yeomanry Avenue near the Armed Forces Memorial. The first fair will take place on Sunday 10th March with 16 nurseries in attendance. All of the nurseries grow the plants they offer for sale and can therefore dispense valuable advice about which specimens would best suit a particular garden and whether they fit a specific planting plan.

Sarah Oakden, Head of Marketing at the National Memorial Arboretum, said: “Our annual Plant Hunters Fairs are a fantastic time for new and experienced gardeners to explore the expanse of the Arboretum before engaging in an unparalleled green fingered shopping experience. The fairs have proved consistently popular and we’re confident that this year’s programme will be just as successful.”
