Gloriosa rothschildiana in the tropical house is in bud now, and should be flowering in time for the Plant Sale & Family Day on 29 June

The annual Botanic Garden Plant Sale & Family Day on Sunday 29 June is our biggest annual public open day, and an important fixture in the community's calendar. All the proceeds go to the Friends of the Botanic Garden, who support the Garden by funding developments.

There are specialist plant nurseries, arts and crafts stalls with sales and activities, environmental/wildlife societies with information, activities and entertainments. You can listen to local bands while you enjoy refreshments on the lawn- all in aid of the Botanic Garden.

The event attracts between 1500-2000 visitors, of all ages. Visitors can buy plants, and explore a variety of stalls around the themes covered by the Botanic Garden's work: education, research, botany, horticulture, conservation, sustainability, both global and local.

Richard Gornall, Director of the Botanic Garden, says: “Whether you are looking for plants for your garden, craft items for gifts, or an enjoyable day out with friends and neighbours, there is something for everyone.”

Open from 11:00am - 5:00pm.

Entrance is £4 (children are free)
