Stallholders traveled far and wide to exhibit their beautiful offerings at the Fair - from ornamental grasses, to carnivorous fly traps, to alpine varieties and spring bulbs - each stall had something unique to show. The highly knowledgeable stall holders offered fair-goers plenty of hints and tips to help them at home.
After a full morning of plant hunting, gardeners retreated to the Garden Cafe to restore their energies. It seems that Cream Teas are the nutritional choice for welly-wearing competitors - with over 150 of Scampston's famous scones being consumed throughout the day!
It was then time to explore the Walled Garden, and to seek inspiration in the perennial meadow or drifts of grass. Crafts and blooms were on display in the Conservatory. Those that still had reserves of energy took a stroll through the Capability Brown parkland.
All in all, a good day was had by all! The Plant Fair games will return to Scampston on the 4th June.
