Flower Power Fairs at Lytham Hall
On Sunday 24th July 2016 the annual Flower Power Fair returns to Lytham Hall. Flower power Fairs brings together some of the very best northern plant growers and specialists to offer quality British plants to the discerning gardener.
Judy Popley, organiser of Flower Power Fairs says: “When Flower Power Fairs first came to Lytham Hall, it was because we felt passionately about what the Heritage Trust were trying to do – bring this beautiful Grade I listed estate back to its former glory. Work continues on a yearly basis and I love coming back to see what has been achieved. The admission to the fair and grounds goes towards this restoration.
We had a brilliant plant fair in 2015 with lots of regular customers returning but we also welcomed new visitors too. The stands were looking very empty by the end of the day so I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Some spectacular plants on sale including enormous agapanthus, thalictrum, shasta daisies and wonderful hellenium and monardas. “
This event will offer an excellent opportunity to purchase plants to suit all gardens. There will be ten plant specialists coming to Lytham and they will be offering a mouth watering selection of summer plants for you to enhance your own gardens with. From shade lovers to sun lovers, we shall have them all.
With the newly restored parterre garden showing off the vibrant colours of lobelias and cosmos, wildflowers galore and newly planted trees all around, it will be a perfect time to visit Lytham Hall, see the changes on site and buy some great British grown plants from dedicated professionals.
Lytham Hall will be offering FREE garden tours commencing at 11.30am, then following at 1pm and 2.30pm, when they will be showing what has been happening over the past 12 months. Marianne Blaauboer, Activity Plan Officer for Lytham Hall added “The changes in the parkland are considerable, with a few very special trees planted these past months. We rejoiced to have a Cedar of Lebanon back on the south prospect garden. The last one blew down in a storm in the 1930s and we’ve long hoped to replant one.”
Refreshments are served all day in the refurbished tea room beside the Plant Fair and you are free to wander at will around all the grounds and gardens. Hope to see you there. Oh! Come early to get the best plants!
Admission to the grounds, gardens and plant fair £3.00. Children free. Dogs are most welcome too. Refreshments in the Tea room between 10am and 4pm, house tours at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm.
