Redman Hardy Plants, Rose Cottage Plants, Pioneer Nurseries (incorporating Sheila Chapman Clematis), Colin Newberry Roses, The Old Walled Garden, Little Heath Nurseries and Herbal Haven Herbs and "several smaller but equally good nurseries" will exhibit at the autumn plant fair at St Michael's School in Highgate, north London N6 4BG on 5 September from 10am. The event is a fundraiser for Plant Heritage, formerly known as the National Council for the Conservation of Plants & Gardens.
Pioneer Nurseries was originally established a century ago by the Letchworth Pioneers, founders of the world's first garden city. Since 2000, John Hoyland and Nick Downing have run the nursery.
Sheila Chapman retired recently from growing and showing Clematis. She is now concentrating on breeding Clematis.
