The Burton Agnes Hall Gardeners' Fair, 15th & 16th June 2019 - not just for the green finger

Burton Agnes Hall & Gardens

The Burton Agnes Hall Gardeners' Fair takes place this coming weekend, Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th June, 11am - 5pm. Over the two days, the Hall & Gardens are transformed into a horticultural celebration with stalls, talks, tours, displays, art installations and demonstrations.

Its award winning gardens will be at their best (previously winning the HHA Christie’s Garden of the Year Award) alongside a broad range of specialist nurseries and stalls selling plants, gardening tools, garden furniture and ornaments.

Over 40 stalls selling plants, gardening tools and furniture; plus garden art, sculpture, food and drink. One of several, new exhibitors at the fair is Damson Tree Vodka; small batches of home-grown damsons are steeped in quality vodka for an entire year to develop a deep, fruity character, with subtle accents of almond and marzipan. Twice filtered, and bottled by hand, Damson Tree Vodka is meticulously crafted.

The Burton Agnes Gardening team and nursery stallholders are on hand to share their expertise.

Gardeners' Question Time: a take on Radio 4's longstanding programme, hosted by Dame Susan Cunliffe-Lister, expert horticulturalist Dick Robinson and Jeremy Palmer (Head Gardener at Burton Agnes). A lively event sparking interesting horticultural questions and conversations.

Garden Tours with Jeremy Palmer are on offer throughout the weekend.
