Plant Hunters’ Fair at Capesthorne Hall

The Spring Plant Fair is taking place at Capesthorne Hall & Gardens in Macclesfield on Sunday 12th May.

Gardeners looking for the perfect planty treat and day out will be pleased to hear that the popular Spring Plant Hunters’ Fair at Capesthorne Hall & Gardens will be returning on Sunday 12th May.

Martin Blow of Plant Hunters' Fairs said:

"The plant fairs at Capesthorne Hall & Gardens have become firm favourites in garden lovers’ diaries and this year we have a wonderful line-up of nurseries attending with plants to suit novice gardeners as well as those rarer gems for the plant connoisseur. There will be plants of the moment for instant impact as well as later-blooming species to get planted now for a succession of colour. The plant fair is the perfect place to get some exciting new plants without having to break the bank. If you need some advice to help you choose then there are nursery folk on hand to help, each an expert in their field with years of knowledge and experience, and full of helpful tips. As well as the plant fair Capesthorne Hall & Gardens has so much to explore with delightful gardens and lakes all set in over 100 acres of parkland to enjoy.”

If you would also like to visit the Hall then this opens 12:30pm to 3:30pm (last entry 3:00pm) for an additional fee.

Capesthorne Hall is located in the village of Siddington in Macclesfield. Dogs on leads are very welcome. Refreshments are available.

The plant fair runs from 10am-4pm on Sunday 12th May.

You can find out which nurseries will be at attending by visiting:


Started in 2007 by plantaholics Janet and Martin Blow from Hankelow, Audlem, Cheshire. The fairs are special and different because entry costs are kept low: many are free to entry and most others are at lower than standard entry price, often half price. Where an entrance fee is charged all the entrance money goes to the garden hosting the event, often Charitable Trusts, raising much needed funds to help maintain these lovely gardens into the future.

Our nurseries are all small family run businesses including an impressive number of RHS medallists.
