Centred on everything to do with country pursuits, it's no wonder that this year The Game Fair has collaborated with students and faculty from Capel Manor College to design and create the biggest show garden that reflects the beautiful landscapes of Hatfield House. As a Patron of the College, The Marchioness of Salisbury has expressed her delight in incorporating members of the college. As a keen gardener herself, Lady Salisbury Said 'It is wonderful that this year The Game Fair are encouraging our apprentices and students to use their skills and knowledge to create a spectacular garden at Hatfield.'
The Game Fair Garden will be over an acre in size and there will be a multitude of horticultural displays including: kitchen gardens, art and culture, herbaceous planting, a large theatre space decorative floristry and an Alitex greenhouse. Having one of her own Alitex structures in the gardens at Hatfield, Lady Salisbury noted her delight in our attendance, 'We look forward to seeing your beautiful greenhouse at Hatfield, we love our greenhouse.' The design of the gardens is in keeping with The Game Fair's ethos of the British countryside; you will also see many varieties of British trees throughout the garden itself.
