Southwell Minster

Entry: £2 suggested donation

The Plant Hunters' Fair returns to this historic and charming venue for a brilliant plant fair with lots of lovely plants from nurseries that rarely get to Nottinghamshire. Guests can browse a wide selection of plants for sale from nurseries throughout the country including many rare species. This popular fair is situated in the beautiful gardens of The Archbishop's Palace next to Southwell Minster.

The Education Garden is a fantastic place to explore and discover the history of the site through living plants. The features of the enclosed garden are inspired by medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Victorian gardens, reflecting the timeline of the Palace.

A wonderful landscape with wide open lawns, it is full of herbs, shrubs and flowering plants chosen not only for their historical relevance, but also for their shape and beauty. Special areas of the grounds have been set aside to encourage a wildlife. The woodland area provides links to the famous “Leaves of Southwell” – the thirteenth century carved stone leaves in Southwell Minster’s Chapter House.

The Garden brings to life time periods important to the history of The Archbishop’s Palace. The design has four distinct parts to it: a Medieval herb parterre; a Tudor knot garden; a border planted in the style of Edwardian plants-woman Gertrude Jekyll; and Wildlife areas including a winter border and woodland and wild meadow. The garden also encourages wildlife through the inclusion of bird boxes, insect hotels and log piles. Portions of the gardens have been designed as native wild flower areas for birds and insects.
