Spetchley Park Gardens near Worcester covers approximately 30 acres, and contains one of the best collections of plants in the country. It has the distinction of being one of the first three gardens opened under the National Garden Scheme in 1924, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of late Victorian design.
This will be a good time to see the carpets of naturalised bulbs in full flower and to catch the early flowering Magnolias. Flowering cherries, Trilliums and many of the early flowering shrubs will also be looking good.
More than 30 specialist nurseries from England and Wales will be attending
the event and many thousands of garden plants will be on sale including rare and
new varieties seldom offered by Garden Centres. These will include a wide range
of Japanese Maples, Trilliums, Arisaemas, Ornamental Grasses, Ferns, Tender
Perennials, Tree Paeonies, wildflowers etc.

There will also be a Pershore College marquee where you will have a chance to pick up gardening tips and secrets from the experts, free plant and gardening advice will be available and you can watch live demonstrations by the College including planting hanging baskets.
Don't forget to bring along any plant samples for identification or questions to test the horticultural advisors.
For those wishing to learn some of the history behind the gardens, free
guided tours will take place throughout the day. These tours will be led by the
owner of Spetchley, John Berkeley.
Refreshments will be available all day including a pig roast. The tea rooms will be open for light snacks, teas and cakes; there will also be a 'beer tent' on the lawn selling local cider and real ale.
Entrance to the Plant Fair and Spetchley Gardens will be £5.00, payable on the day.
As in previous years we will be offering a plant search facility for those visitors looking for a particular plant. Please click here for further details.
