All the Fun of the Fair

Wealden Times Autumn… I mean Summer Fair!

Last weekend saw How Green brave the elements at Hole Park in Rolvenden, for the Wealden Times Summer Fair.

In the lead-up to the event we had the customary monsoon-like conditions we’ve been accustomed to this Summer! This made setting up our stand a little tricky, but the onset of the first trading day, the skies cleared and we all had a wonderful day.

With our backdrop, the stunning┬áHole Park stately home, the smell of sun tan lotion thick in the air, we all crossed fingers for three days of barmy weather! Alas no… the following day we had huge downpours and on the final day the fair almost blew away. R.I.P our gazebo!

Thank you for all your support to make our fair another successful event!

Mud Glorious Mud… or It’s a Wash Out!

Visitor numbers down by 30% due to bad weather.

Last week, How Green Nursery attended the Penshurst Craft Fair with show gardens and plant stand. But, with weeks of endless rain the showground resembled a mud bath. Our van became stuck in the mire and had to be pulled out by a tractor and that was before the show had even started!

Freezing temperatures, grey skies and heavy showers didn’t deter the folk who braved the elements to come and see us though! We received plenty of positive feedback for our ‘Fire & Ice’ garden in conjunction with Chilstone from Langton Green.

We are pleased to announce that we have confirmed a pitch at the Wealden Times Summer Fair at the wonderful Hole Park. More details will be announced nearer the time.
