The Collectors' Plant Fair 2021 is confirmed for the weekend of Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th April 2021 at the Hawkesbury Race Club in Clarendon.

Featuring over 100 stallholders locally and interstate, the Collectors' Plant Fair has been a staple for plant lovers for over 15 years.

It features plants you won't find in your average nursery. Some plants at the fair are slow-growing, others are hand-grafted, which is not always viable for commercial plant nurseries. Meanwhile, other plants may have a niche target market like cross-bred flowers to produce unique colour variations.

Whatever their uniqueness, you'll find them all at the Collectors' Plant Fair in 2021.

Never underestimate the power of finding a beautiful and unique plant. It captivates, enchants, and will bestow its magic upon you. If you don't purchase it, you'll find yourself thinking about it, wishing you had; you'll look for it at every nursery, but it won't be there.

Prepare in advance, knowing that you will buy plants, probably more than you anticipate should you attend.

Stock up on those oversized $1 blue IKEA bags or a four-wheeled plant trolley like this, to carry your haul.

There is also a plant creche where you can store plants whilst you go and get your car.

Consider it a one-stop-shop to fill your house and garden with unusual and exotic plants, filling your life with greenery.
