We’re thrilled to announce our new dates for 2021:


(And yes, we are honouring tickets bought for 2020.)

We can’t wait to welcome you back through the festival gates in June.

SEE YOU IN 2021!

We missed you in 2020 but we can’t wait to see you in 2021 when we’ll have everything our visitors have come to love, including award-winning specialist nurseries and quality plants, artisan food and craft, live music and two full days of talks and demo’s from the nation’s top garden experts. 


You can buy the best selection of plants, shrubs, trees and flowers, interesting and unusual plants from our award-winning nurseries, including many Chelsea Gold Medal winners. All the nurseries are genuine growers dedicated to offering the highest quality plants.

Here’s who’s joining us in 2021 >>


Each year we curate the highest quality range of local food and drink we can find, much of it produced in Devon and the West Country, with plenty for special diets including alternatives for vegan and vegetarian diets, lactose-intolerant and gluten-free. We’ll be announcing who’s joining us for 2021 in the spring, in the meantime here’s who cooked up a treat last time.

We’re back for summer!

Spades at the ready! we’ve a new Toby Garden Fest date to nail into your diary!

Friday 11th and Saturday 12th and June 2021!

At last, the uncertainty of the ‘year that never was’ is behind us and the roll-back of restrictions, and our Fest’s setting within low-risk and spacious parkland mean we can look forward to the summer with confidence.

And there’s so much to be excited about, especially at what will be our 7th Garden Festival at Powderham Castle. As always, we’re celebrating the wonders of the Great Outdoors and bringing together award-winning specialist nurseries, quality plants, artisan food, crafts, live music, talks, demo’s and fun all within the beautiful curtilage of a 14th century castle!

Our early-summer slot opens up new plant-possibilities and areas for display at a time when the Castle grounds are at their abundant best.    

Rest assured… you’ll not only have a safe day out you’ll have a wonderful and inspiring one too.

See you soon!
