A record crowd of keen gardeners arrived at the British Ironwork Centre on Sunday for the companyís annual plant huntersí fair, now in its 4th year.

With over £1000 raised for Hope House Childrenís Hospices and an unprecedented amount of support, the event was a tremendous success.

The Centre played host to the some of the most highly respected nurseries in the country as well as small specialist growers such as Hillview Hardy Plants, Hall farm Nursery, the Gobbett and many more, we also welcomed Dr. Steve Reynolds, one of the regionís expert on plant problems, he focussed on offering advice about plant diseases and health issues, how to combat bugs and more.

Other attractions included Shropshire Wildlife Trust and of course live music , from Max Hixon (23) singer & songwriter.

The fair proved to be an inspiring day for all visitors who were able to browse the unique plants and specialist nurseries, while enjoying the brilliant and iconic surroundings of the metal safari trail.

With onsite florist, Budding Delights, and silversmith demonstrations, not to mention a chance to buy plants grown and sold by knowledgeable specialists the fair offered the perfect family day out for all ages.
