Plant Fairs

All HPS plant fairs are open to the public.

HPS local group fairs are the perfect place to find unusual and garden worthy perennial plants for your garden. The plants may have been raised within a few miles of the fair by enthusiastic Hardy Plant Society members or they may be on sale from specialist nurseries the organisers have invited.

Hardy Planters have a wealth of experience of growing plants so make the most of their expertise at an HPS local group plant fair. They will help you find a plant to suit your garden - be it wet or dry, clay or sandy soil, shady or sunny.
