Gardeners' Fair at Budleigh Salterton

Well, the gardening season is well underway, and so are the weeds, slugs and snails though in this dry spell there's less sign of those annoying predators. But every time I lift an old bit of brick or paving slab in the garden there they are breeding stealthily and dreaming about their next meal.

So there's plenty of work to be done out there, and a Gardener's Fair in Budleigh Salterton's Public Hall on 1 May 2010 might be just the place for you to pick up some useful gadgets, books, plants or even hints from experienced gardeners.

This is the fourth annual Gardener's Fair in Budleigh organised by Hyson Fairs Ltd which stages similar events at Topsham just over a week later, and at Chagford at the end of the month.

From potting shed to patio - lots on offer at a Gardeners' Fair
Each fair offers a variety of stalls selling everything for and to do with the garden, from plants, garden furniture, gardenalia - a word I hadn't come across before - to gardening tools new and second hand, antique bygones, gardening books, and much more.

Admission is free. The Budleigh Salterton Gardeners' Fair is open from 10.00 am - 3.00 pm. For further information click on
