Jilly Cooper to open Eyford Estate plant sale

Novelist Jilly Cooper is to open a plant sale at the Eyford Estate, Stow on the Wold, Gloucestershire.

The Eyford House Plant Sale, which will have 25,000 plants on offer, has been organised by a committee of local hunt members. It is intended to raise money for the Countryside Alliance and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

It will include a shopping village with gardener’s accessories, clothing and gifts.

Charlotte Heber Percy, whose family lives at Eyford House, said: "We are so lucky to live in this heavenly setting and love to share it with the public.

"The plant sale is something we are all passionate about: everyone on the committee supports country sports and the rural way of life, and we also support our brave armed forces, so this plant sale is the ideal way for us to boost both causes while providing a fun day out."
