Mapperton House near Beaminster is hosting the 16th Autumn Garden Fair this Sunday.

There will be almost 30 stands, including popular regulars Leesa’s not just Alpines, Snape Stakes and beautiful salvias from Foxplants. New to the autumn fair is Paddock Plants whose range include patio and indoor plants and Whinwhistle Nursery with succulents and seasonal cut flowers.

There will also be the opportunity to take a guided tour of the manor house, explore the extensive garden (house and garden entrance extra), visit The Sawmill Café and the Mapperton shop. Over the years many thousands of pounds have been raised for local and national charities. The Earl and Countess Sandwich have chosen Cancer Research UK as the charity to benefit from the shared proceeds this year.

The fair is on Sunday, September 16 from 10am-4pm. Entry is £3 and under 16s are free.

It is jointly organised by Charity Specialist Plant Fairs.
