News and reviews
Creake Abbey, three miles south of Burnham Market has been overwhelmed with applications for its highly popular Plant Lovers’ Day.
This celebrated horticultural event, now in its 10th year, will return on Saturday, May 27.
The event is fully booked with 36 garden nurseries attending. Plantsmen from Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex as well as leading nurseries from Hertforshire and Nottinghamshire will be on hand to inspire the region’s gardeners. More than 1,600 visitors from throughout East Anglia and beyond are expected to attend.
Diana Brocklebank Scott, founder of Creake Abbey, said: “The Creake Abbey Plant Lovers’ Day has earned a reputation for attracting the best in garden nurseries and horticultural expertise and we are delighted by the demand for this year’s event.”
The gate opens at 10am and closes at 4pm. Entrance to the plant fair is £4, with under-16s free.
Over the past nine years Creake Abbey has raised more than £20,000 for Wells Community Hospital through its annual Plant Lovers’ Day and subsequent donations. Proceeds from the 2017 event will also go to that worthy cause.
