Airfield Estate @ Dundrum, Dublin 14

The Rare and Special Plant Fair 2015 in association with Bord Bia

The Rare and Special Plant Fair 2015 - Airfield Dublin 14

Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. Green fingered gardeners of all ages are encouraged to visit Airfield Dundrum on Sunday May 10th from 10am to 5pm, when it will play host to The Rare & Special Plant Fair 2015. Over forty specialist nurseries and associated businesses will be on site giving people the opportunity to purchase a vast selection of rare and unusual plants, advice on care and planting and much more. Cost of entry on the day is the discounted rate of only €5 for adults and children; for further information visit www.rareandspecialplantfair.ie and www.airfield.ie

The Rare & Special Plant Fair was established in 2001 with the assistance of Bord Bia to ensure that the gardening public has an opportunity to purchase rare and difficult to source plants, while at the same time visit a garden of note that they may not otherwise visit. Since then it has grown in reputation and stature, and is now considered one of the most highly anticipated dates on the horticultural calendar. As well as giving the gardening public the chance to purchase rare plants, the annual fair ensures that nurseries and breeders of these plants in Ireland have an opportunity to present them for sale. Visitors can also take advantage of expert gardener advice on the day, and a free plant crèche will be available.

In addition to this The Rare and Special Plant Fair offers the chance to visit some of the finest gardens Ireland has to offer. With past venues including Russborough House in Wicklow, Fancroft Millhouse Gardens in Roscrea and Farmleigh in Phoenix Park, this year's venue, Airfield, is now added to a list of the country's most notable and beautiful gardens. As well as a wonderful summer day out enjoying Airfield's ornamental and food gardens, lovingly tended to and cultivated by an expert team of gardeners, visitors on the day can experience Dublin's only working farm open to the public, a state of the art interactive heritage centre, display garage of vintage cars, and Overends restaurant.

 Admission to The Rare & Special Plant Fair at Airfield from 10am to 5pm on Sunday May 10th is €5 for all visitors.
