Creake Abbey Plant Lovers’ Day

This popular horticultural event, now in its 17th year, takes place at the beautiful monastic site at Creake Abbey, just south of Burnham Market in north Norfolk.

The event has a loyal following of gardening enthusiasts who flock to enjoy the exciting and unusual plants on offer, all at excellent prices. Visitors will find the full range of herbaceous perennials as well as grasses, bulbs, shrubs and climbers from specialist garden nurseries across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. It is possible to buy direct from the nurseries or pre-order specific plants with collection on the day. As always, the public is encouraged to take full advantage of the advice and inspiration on offer from the region’s leading plantsmen.

Entrance to the event area is £5.00 per adult, with all proceeds coming to the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Charity. There is no charge for under 16s. Dogs on leads welcome, but must not be left in cars.

Refreshments on the day will be provided by a stunning line up of carefully selected Norfolk street food and catering businesses alongside The Barn Café, as follows:

Owie’s Big Black Piggy Porkers – hot bacon or sausage baps and pork burgers
The Duck Truck – the famous duck wraps with cucumber, spring onion and hoisin sauce
Coffeesmiths – Artisan coffee, tea and snacks
The Hope Coffee Co – Barista coffee, tea and hot chocolate
Traditional Norfolk Ice Cream – Cones, ice creams and tubs from the Lakenham Creamery

 Visitors may also browse the wares and services of Creake Abbey’s resident independent shops and services free of charge.
