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.
