 It’s a one-pot-stop at the Settle Flowerpot Festival 

For the second year running, Stewart Garden is playing a major supportive role in this year’s Settle Flowerpot Festival taking place in the Yorkshire town throughout July and August.

2016 saw the company install a giant flowerpot man called Stewart on Castleberg Crag, a limestone cliff that overlooks Settle. Stewart was highly visible from the town as he ‘climbed’ the crag.

This year, Stewart Garden is, once again, donating hundreds of planters, including selected products from its Palladian and Cilindro ranges. They’ll feature prominently in flowerpot displays adorning the town during the event.

The official opening of the 2017 Festival is on Saturday 1 July.

A beer festival will also coincide with the event. This will take place at Victoria Hall from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 July and feature 18 ales from across the country, real cider, wine, soft drinks and food.  

The Vibrant Settle Community Partnership, the voluntary organisation that organises the Festival, expects the event to attract several thousand visitors to the town – including many people who wouldn’t otherwise come to Settle. The partnership will use money raised by the Festival to fund events and initiatives that promote the town and surrounding area.

The Flowerpot Festival will conclude with the Settle Folk Gathering, which this year runs from Thursday 31 August to Sunday 3 September. The gathering comprises concerts, workshops and sessions in and around Settle.        

Looking ahead to the Settle Flowerpot Festival, Andy Burns, managing director of Stewart, said: “For two months, the beautiful town of Settle will be a celebration of colour, fun and activity. There’ll be something for everyone to enjoy, so we – and our intrepid climber, Stewart – are delighted to playing our part and getting involved in this fantastic event.”

Stewart Garden loves gardens. It’s a leading grow-your-own and contemporary garden lifestyle brand, the market leader in premium plastic flower planters, including self-watering plant containers, and the voice of authority in premium consumer propagation.

Stewart Garden is a proud UK manufacturer. Its products are available in over 1,600 outlets across the country, including DIY retailers such as B&Q, Homebase and Wilkinsons. They’re also widely stocked at garden centres such as Dobbies, Notcutts and Wyevale and in over 1,000 independent garden centres.
