Spring plant fair at Rowallane

Rowallane Garden will become a hive of activity with a Spring Plant Fair on Saturday and Sunday 31 April & 1 May, running from 11 - 4pm

Shoppers at Rowallane's Plant Fair

Plants grown at our famous garden will be available for sale with a mixture of herbaceous perennials, and herbs propagated from the garden nursery. In addition to Rowallane’s own stall, specialist nurseries from the region will be offering a variety of shrubs, herbaceous and alpines to purchase.

‘The garden is having a wonderful spring season this year and will be in full blossom at the time of the Plant Fair. Visitors will be able to enjoy both the garden and Plant Fair for retail therapy! The Spring Ground and Rock Garden are looking fabulous with the warm spring weather’ says Head Gardener Averil Milligan.

We have a vibrant café and shop for you to enjoy. So, on your journey why not take the weight of your feet and pop in for a cuppa and enjoy our lunch offer, and a nosey round our bespoke shop.

Rowallane contains a treasure trove of exotic plants from around the world and springtime is one of the most exciting times to visit. The magical walled garden is a must see for the magnolias, daphnes and azaleas, while the enormous and much-admired collection of rhododendrons is the true star of the show.
