New for 2015 we have added an Autumn plant fair to our calendar at Weston Park. If your garden is looking a little tired after summer then this is a great opportunity to find some late blooming plants to cheer it up. Autumn is also the perfect time to plant ready for next year’s bloom. The soil is still warm and plants have plenty of time to establish and make themselves at home before winter. The nursery folk will be more than happy to give you the benefit of their experience in planting and caring for the plants you buy so you can get the best from them. With entry just at £2.50 for the Gardens and Plant Fair it is a great chance to enjoy the changing season at Weston and visit our last fair of the 2015 season. Enjoy light refreshments in the Stables Coffee Bar or visit the Granary Bar, Grill and Restaurant. The plant fair runs from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
