Great Dixter Spring Plant Fair 2017

This weeks Reblog Sunday is from The Frustrated Gardner. In this particular post, the plantsman takes us on a trip to a plant fair. I hope you enjoy the beautiful plants like I do. I could definitely do some plant collecting throughout this blog.

With much love,

Despite arriving a little early, I was not the first; not by a long stretch. Having been ushered into a parking space by Fergus Garrett, Great Dixter’s Head Gardener, I slid out of the car to the sound of people earnestly and eagerly buying plants.
