‘Organic and unusual’ plants on offer at Yarlington House fair this month

A RANGE of organic and unusual veg plants will be on offer at a plant sale this month.

The Yarlington House Plant Fair will take place on Saturday, May 13, from 10am to 4pm.

Around 23 nursery gardens are set to be on site at the 21st fair, selling a wide range of plants ready to pop straight into beds, borders and pots.

The Yarlington House stall will be selling organic veg plants and unusual annuals.

“In addition, Yarlington House’s extensive gardens are yours to explore for the day,” said a spokesperson.

“Not normally open to the public, these much-loved gardens include a stunning rose garden, pleached limes, an 18th-century kitchen garden and a laburnam walk.

“Bring a picnic, soak up the scenery, and come away filled with ideas and plants for your own patch.”

Tea, coffee and cake will be available, and there will be a plant raffle. Entry costs £5 (free for under-16s). Dogs on leads are welcome.

In 2022, over £11,000 was raised and the organisers hope for similar success this year, with all money raised benefiting Yarlington village.
