Last weekend saw the annual May bank holiday craft fair at Penshurst Place. A three day event, with hundreds of exhibitors showcasing their wares! How Green Nursery attended for the fifth year in succession alongside our good friends Chilstone of Tunbridge Wells. Together we join forces to create a mini show garden and also sell our goodies!
2013 see’s Chilstone run into it’s 60th year and their diamond anniversary. To honour this achievement, we created a diamond shaped garden, with a planting scheme to match!
The weather was fantastic, especially on the Sunday & Monday, with no rain and warm sunshine, bringing the crowds in their thousands. Bank holiday Monday, visitor numbers reached record proportions not only to the fair, but also Penshurst Place.
Our stock has caught up with the fantastic weather of late, so lot’s of colourful plants were on display, not only in the garden, but also for sale! We also sold a record number of plants, with the gardening public eager to get their gardens up to speed!
Our next outing is The Decorative Living Fair at Eridge on May 16th – come and see us there!
