Friends of Ashridge

Come along and support the Ashridge Estate! How? By buying top quality plants at the Ashridge Spring Plant Fair on Sunday May 15th, 11.00am to 4.00pm at the National Trust Ashridge Visitor Centre, Monument Drive, Ringshall HP4 1LX  This will be our 20th consecutive Spring Plant Fair – the idea for the first plant fair was formed in 1997 by the then Chairman, Trevor Marwood. The Fair has since grown from strength to strength, in reach and revenue, and we now regularly raise circa £7,000 each year to help the National Trust maintain the Ashridge Estate. Please come and browse amongst the thousands of plants that will be on display and the plant stock available from small visiting nurseries on a commercial basis. These nurseries kindly donate a percentage of their earnings to the National Trust Plant Fair. The majority of our plants are from volunteer growers and private gardens.
If you have any plants to donate to the Fair then we would love to hear from you. We are especially interested in vegetable plants, border plants and perennials, roses, climbers and herbs. Please contact the organiser, John Cartwright on 864984. We look forward to seeing you.
