This open day is part of a nationwide celebration of our fabulous British flowers. Its all about raising awareness of the wonderful flower farms, gardens and growers across the country, businesses large and small who are part of this growing movement.
Inspired and promoted by Flowers From The Farm there will be events happening on flower farms and cutting gardens across the country. Visit www.flowersfromthefarm.co.uk for more information.
Come and enjoy the cutting gardens, the dahlias and perennial plants will be in full floriferous bloom. There will be nature walks around the garden with bee and butterfly spotting and identification. The Norfolk master Composter on hand to talk about the benefits of making your own compost, plus refreshments, a plant stall and bunches of flowers to buy and take home.
Under 8s to be accompanied at all times, well behaved dogs welcome on leads please.
We welcome horticultural clubs, gardening clubs and group visits to the garden. Experience the garden and the wonderful variety of plants and shrubs throughout the seasons from April to October. Garden tours, questions and answer sessions, cut flowers, plants for sale and refreshments can be provided. Alternatively, if you are looking for a speaker I’m happy to bring the garden to you! in the form of a slideshow and talk.

Opportunities and Volunteering
We welcome volunteers to help out in the garden. Our usual work day is a Tuesday, if you fancy getting out in the fresh air, immersed in nature, being part of a team in a wonderful garden and lending a hand or you know someone who does, please do get in touch.
There is always a job that needs doing to keep the garden running smoothly and looking good, either in the garden or the greenhouse. And theres always tea and coffee and usually cake!
