The Andover Town Centre Partnership is launching a new event on Andover's High Street this summer to appeal to both experienced and budding horticulturalists. On Sunday 24th June, the Andover Gardening Fair will bring together plant producers offering a range of high quality herbaceous perennials, shrubs, ornamental grasses, herbs, ferns and alpines. As well as plants, there will be stalls offering landscaping products, garden furniture and accessories, natural beauty products and delicious home-made cakes, preserves and pickles.
Gemma Thompson, Andover Town Centre Manager is organising the event and explains: "at the Andover Gardening Fair you will meet owners and growers who really care about their plants and products, and offer the interesting as well as the unusual. Visitors to the Fair will be able to discuss their gardening requirements with our horticultural experts and then source plants directly from small local suppliers offering great diversity, quality and value for money."
The local Allotment Association will provide information and advice on growing your own Veg and Wyevale Garden Centres Children's Zone will keep younger visitors entertained with face painting, seed planting and crafts. The Andover Town Band and Sing for Fun will be performing throughout the day with refreshments available from The Gin Stall.
Entry for visitors is free. For more information visit www.andovergardeningfair.co.uk.
