A RIBBLE Valley stately home is set to host a plant and garden fair on Sunday.

The historic gardens at Browsholme Hall at Cow Ark will host the event with the Bowland spring artisan market from 10am to 4pm.

Visitors will have an opportunity to buy unusual plants direct from specialist nurseries including perennials, herbs and grasses.

Robert Parker, the owner of Browsholme Hall, will also give tours around the landscape.

He said: “This will be ‘an opportunity for families to get up close to and discover and identify our native trees, spring flowers and even possibly see young, ducklings and tadpoles on the three acre lake.”
