Freckles and Flora                  NEW Another new nursery to Flower Power this year is Henrietta based in Kirby Wiske near Thirsk.  She will be bringing a variety of herbaceous plants, specifically umbels, asters, choice annuals all grown in her own homegrown peat free compost.

Fruit Works Co-Operative     NEW  Based in Leeds, Lydia and her team specialise in fruit trees, with the emphasis on apple trees and are helping to encourage people to plant a small orchard in their garden, or community space, to help wild life.  They also sell fruit juices made with their own fruit. 

Gardening with Wildlife        A cornucopia of amazing things which Matthew has lovingly created out of discarded wood, wire, paper and anything else he can get his hands on.  A large selection of hand made and correctly built bird boxes, hedgehog homes, owl boxes and habitat hotels.  Aided and abetted by his wife, Fran, who creates many of the other items they sell, often with delightful decoupage pots and planters, sea glass creations, recycled copper items and Ben who is also a gifted wood turner in his own right bringing quality pens and wooden bowls.  Gardening with wildlife is for anyone who wishes to tempt our birds, bees and mammals into our gardens. 

Gatekeeper Nurseries                        Based in East Yorkshire, Gatekeeper always bring a smorgasbord selection of incredible plants from climbers to creepers, shade lovers to shrubs, herbaceous favourites and early flowering plants.  All grown in Yorkshire. 

Judith Lowther           Judith brings all sorts of things to the plant fairs!  Garden and rural agricultural relics, antiques and unusual tools and planters and also a selection of her own plants that she grows at her home and sells on to you.  Always a great stand to take your time over.

Just Baskets                Cliff attends many of the large horticultural events during the season so we are lucky to welcome him to Newburgh Priory.  All things baskets, from krugs to log baskets, shopping baskets and decorative baskets for your home.  A must visit stand!

Meadowmakers         Ed Cook is now in his fourth year of trading, and brings together his passion for wildflowers, meadow-making and rewilding to gardeners and conservationists alike.  The case for incorporating native wildflowers has been highlighted over the years by Sir David Attenborough and Monty Don, to name but two.  Ed brings plug plants to the fairs and encourages you to add colour, insect interest and diversity into your gardens. 

These statistics are really heartbreaking:  97% Of native wildflowers lost since 1960,  72% of native butterflies have seen declines since 2005, 99% of wildflower meadows lost since 1980, and native bee populations have halved in less than 30 years.  We all need to do our bit.

Middlemoor Cottage Garden Plants   Sharon and Jeff are based near Richmond and brings a vast selection of spring and early summer flowering plants including hardy perennials, cottage garden plants, annuals, vegetables and some lovely pots and containers. And in the middle of all this, they farm too.

Northern Ark Nursery           NEW   Many of you will remember Simon, the previous owner of Northern Ark.  He sold out his business a couple of years ago and we are thrilled to welcome new owner, Ian Robson, to Flower Power.  Depending on the season, Ian will be bringing his hardy herbs (they live in Northumberland!) 95% of which has been grown from their own cuttings.  All grown in their own peat free compost.

Queen of Greens        NEW Another new nursery to Flower Power is Sharon from Kirkby Fleetham.  She will be bringing houseplants, tropical, native, carnivorous and foliage plants as well as some succulents and cacti. 

Reading Room at Constable Burton   NEW

Respect Soaps             Sandra’s stand always smells delicious with her huge variety of home made soaps, earth kind soap for hair, hands and body care items plus a small selection of scented home items.  Wonderful quality and I can personally recommend her shampoos and body butters.
