Kew to host former Cottesbrooke Plant Finders Fair

The Plant Finders Fair that was held for five years at Cottesbrooke is to relocate to The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The fair takes place from 24-26 April 2015 and will feature "hand-picked, knowledgeable hero growers together with outstanding makers of garden paraphernalia from across the UK and beyond".

Kew commercial director Jonathan Marks said: "We are delighted to welcome the Plant Finders Fair to Kew, and we hope it will become an annual fixture on our events calendar. It is recognised as an outstanding event of this genre and matches our values and standards of excellence." 

Ticket price will be Kew's usual entrance price of adults £15-£17, with children free. The fair will open to 8pm on Friday and 7.30pm on Saturday.

Cottesbrooke's fair, organised by TJM, ended in 2012. The Kew fair replaces one by TJM held at Borde Hill, which ran in 2014.
