March 2020

The Popular Pansy and Viola festival

Dates to be confirmed.

The festival is the public face of the largest independent variety trial of these plants held in Great Britain, with the seed of new varieties supplied by plant breeders from around the world.

Each year new and experimental varieties are displayed for the first time. All the plants for the festival are grown by W.D. Smith & Son, owners of Meadow Croft Garden Centre in their own glasshouses nearby, and then moved to the Garden Centre for the Festival.


The past fifteen years have seen surprising changes in the cultivars on display, not just new colours or larger flowers, but very significant developments in the shape and habit of some new varieties. We now have plants that really do trail and spread, making them much more suitable for containers and hanging baskets.


Each year visitors to the festival play an important part, by voting for their favourite varieties from amongst those displayed. The votes are counted and the ‘Top Ten’ Festival Favourites published in the gardening and trade press.

Free to attend
