Specialist Plant Day

Back to Events

9 Sep 2018 - 9 Sep 2018

Gardening enthusiasts can take advantage of the expertise of many of the county’s top nurseries and growers at the Specialist Plant Day held here at Pensthorpe Natural Park, on Sunday 9 September 2018, 10am – 4pm. 

Organised in partnership with the Norfolk Nursery Network, the event will see the county’s finest independent nurseries showcasing their plants and produce at Pensthorpe, selling a range of plants from exotic and rare species to traditional favourites. The participating nurseries will also have experts on hand to answer gardening questions and solve green-fingered dilemmas.

Entry to the Specialist Plant Day costs £1 per adult, whilst children can attend for a small donation. All proceeds raised will go to The Escape Project – Family Action, a local charity which promotes well-being through community gardening. Entry into Pensthorpe Natural Park is separate and you do not need to pay entry into Pensthorpe to visit the Plant Day. Please note, however that we are offering reduced entry into Pensthorpe on this day, for all visitors who wish to enter our reserve – see details below.
