Unfortunately the Plant Fair at Felley Priory this Sunday has had to be cancelled due to waterlogging on site. Why not visit us at the Botanic Garden, Wollaton for our Final Plant Sale of the year instead? 

We will be open from 10am to 4pm. With lots of plants that can still be planted out this month and the walled garden still full of flower, what’s not to like?
