Autumn Plant Fair at RHS Garden Harlow Carr

Now is the time to get some autumn colour into your garden and start planning for spring. To help you along with ideas, RHS Garden Harlow Carr is once again hosting its Autumn Plant Fair in partnership with Plant Heritage. The plant fair will take place on Sunday 9 September, 10am-4pm. www.rhs.org.uk/harlowcarr

Specialist nurseries from around Britain will be offering advice and a wide range of beautiful autumn plants at this popular annual event, including late-flowering herbaceous plants, alpines, grasses, bulbs, herbs and more.

Lizzie Balmforth, Curator of RHS Garden Harlow Carr, says, "Don't wait until spring to get the most out of your garden. Autumn is the time to get planting for great spring displays, and the show is packed full of ideas and plants to get you started, whether you want colour from containers bursting with bulbs, show-garden perfection from mixed herbaceous planting or delicious fruit gardens.

"You'll also find inspirational ideas, top tips and free autumn planting cards available in The Harlow Carr Shop and Plant Centre, to make sure your garden is looking its best this season, and is ready for a fantastic spring."

With its lovely late-summer colour, the garden at Harlow Carr makes a wonderful setting for this event. The Main Borders are at full height with stunning colours in glowing reds, oranges and golds interwoven with the softness of ornamental grasses. The extensive Kitchen Garden is also in full flow with the vegetables still coming thick and fast at this time of year, so plenty of ideas there, too.

Admission to the Plant Fair is included with the normal garden entrance fee (RHS members (plus 1 family guest) free, adults £7.50, children 5-16 £3.75, under 5s free). Plant Heritage members are admitted free on production of a valid membership card. Visitors are encouraged to bring along their own bags, where possible, to carry home any plant purchases, in a bid to encourage the recycling and reuse of plastic bags.
