    RHS Hyde Hall has recently held a plant fair which was a pleasure to visit. It was more on the scale of Courson (outside Paris) than some of the major events that the RHS runs each year. I’m sure they would have loved it to be as busy as the Olympic Park gardens, but from the consumers point of view it was just right. There was plenty of space to wander between the stalls, a wide selection of late summer plants from quality nurseries and the opportunity to wander round the gardens at Hyde Hall which are particularly relevant to anyone living in a dry area.
