With the help of Independent Cambridge - the definitive guide to ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network continues its weekly exploration of the best independent shops, cafés, restaurants, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: Burwash Manor Plant Fair.
Explore Independent Cambridge - Burwash Manor Plant Fair
This Sunday (April 23rd) sees the annual plant fair at Burwash Manor, the group of converted farm buildings located just two miles from Cambridge city centre. Follow the dedicated cycle path all the way or enjoy free parking.
The fair will have it all – from unusual cottage garden plants, perennials and roses to shrubs and ferns. What’s best is that they are all grown in the UK, and very sensibly priced.
Stalls are staffed by the growers themselves, and as only small, dedicated nurseries are allowed to exhibit, you will find the best of the best - plus some very unusual specimens and even some plants that you just can’t find anywhere else!
Enthusiastic growers are on hand to give advice on how, where and why you should plant their varieties and are happy to welcome all gardeners – from the seriously green fingered to the complete novice.
11am until 4pm.
Discover unique boutiques and boutique hotels mingled with communities of artists and craftspeople. Sample an award-winning restaurant or thriving little café tucked away in a back street – all easy to locate with the 200 page full-colour Independent Cambridge guide.
Handily presented with a map and an index at the beginning of each section, this book is the indispensable key to finding out what’s on offer from the independents of Cambridge. Get your copy from Waterstones, Heffers, many of the independent shops or online at www.independent-cambridge.co.uk
