The British Plant Fair brought together over 30 British growers in Stoneleigh last Thursday. The show is aimed at the retail trade and offers garden centre buyers a vast range of garden plants available to order on the day and all from British growers.

Below an impression of the day:

According to one of the exhibitors, Andrew Jeanes of New Leaf Plants, it was a good show, but it was not as busy as expected. "The question I would like to ask is, a show that is at the very start of our hopefully busy season, with many suppliers offering incentives to place orders, with a great mix of British grown product and yet in my view it was not as busy as I would have expected. A Dutch show seems to get people on planes and 48hrs away from your work place but a 2 hour drive seems too much. Why is this?" On his LinkedIn page he posted this picture of their booth.

Also Exhibitor Hawkesmill Nurseries‏ posted a picture of their booth on Social Media; on their Twitter Page.
