A very popular plant fair with the Cheshire gardeners and again, I am delighted that we will be able to hold the fair with them. Spilling out from the gravelled drive and into the park, the fair has grown over the years and features many of the top plant nurseries in the North West.

The list below shows both the plant specialists and the garden accessories who will be attending our May Day event.

Bright and Beautiful   David Leese has been at Flower Power Fairs for many years, always bringing a great collection of seasonal plants, hardy perennials, shrubs, always of the highest quality.

Chris Steel Herbs – Chris is a local Cheshire plantsman and will be bringing lots of different herbs, both clinal and medicinal.

D K Plants        Dave Knox and I have known each other for well over 30 years!  He is a dedicated plantsman with extensive knowledge and over the years has created his own garden display areas at his nursery in Cheadle, Staffordshire.  Dave always brings an amazing display of plants.  Unusual shrubs, hardy perennials and shade loving plants.  

Edge Nurseries            Based in Staffordshire, Xavier joined Flower Power Fairs last year and puts together a great display of his perennials and seasonal plants.

Fig & Rose       You first met Fig & Rose at Sandon Hall last year.  Anne brings a magnificent display of garden accessories, rusty metal décor, plant supports, obelisks, garden wall art, bird baths, planters and whatever delights she’s created over the winter season. 

Hardy Plant Society – Staffordshire Branch   A cornucopia of plants on sale from the wonderful ladies and gentlemen of the HPS.  Lots of little gems to be had from their stall so make sure you get there early to have the best choice.

Hillview Hardy Plants Based in Shropshire, this wonderful nursery is the holder of Gold medals from Chelsea, Hampton Court, Malvern, Harrogate Flower Shows and many more.  I have known the Millingtons for many years and they always bring an interesting collection of plants in flower to the fairs.  They hold the National Collection of Auricula so expect to see some of those little gems at the fair.  

L J Nurseries    Based in Cheshire, Bill and Gill have supported Flower Power Fairs more or less since we started in 2006.  Bill has a wonderful knowledge of plants and they always bring a colourful display of their choice herbaceous perennials and shrubs.  

Penmere Plants          Sarah is based in Congleton and is one of the best fuchsia nurseries in the north.  She propagates and grows all her own plants, some tender but mainly offering fabulous hardy fuchsia to plant in your gardens.  She will also be bringing complimentary plants to grow alongside her fuchsia.  

Prized Perennials        Stuart and Jenny run their own plant nursery in Derbyshire.  Stuart has a National Diploma in Horticulture and Jenny a MSc in Landscape Ecology, Design & Management from Wye College in Kent.  They grow an amazing collection of beautiful perennials including phlox, paniculata, penstemon, bearded iris, helenium, pelargoniums and hebes.

Ruth & Bryan Hall       Based in Church Broughton, Derbyshire and again, long supporters of Flower Power Fairs.  Ruth brings a collection of tender succulents, alpines and unusual perennials.

RSPB               Royal Society for the Protection of Birds will be our main charity this year, bringing knowledge and passion to our wonderful garden birds.  Please consider joining the society to help our, sadly, diminishing bird life.  

Stannard’s       Sadly Stannard’s have had to cancel attending the plant fair as Brian had a horrendous bicycle accident earlier this month and is still in hospital. I’m sure all of us who know both Brian and Liz well, wish him the best recovery and hope to see him later on in the season.
