Garden Show raises £1490 for the Liz Jones Memorial Trust and Dravet Syndrome Charity.

June’s garden show was a huge success with a great turnout over the weekend, raising £1490 for the Liz Jones Memorial Trust and Dravet Syndrome Charity

Inspired by this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Woodgate Nursery Garden Show showed off local companies’ gardening skills, with visitors voting for their favourite garden design.

This year’s winner was Thyme For Bed featuring an outdoor room which was designed by the Woodgate team.  A close second went to IFC Landscapes, featuring a paved design, box hedging and a willow fence.

Peter Purdy, founder of Woodgate Nursery, comments, ‘Our garden show raised a staggering amount for local charities and everyone had a fantastic weekend, with the garden show getting better every year! I’m already looking forward to the 2017 designs!’

This year’s show was packed full of inspiration for the garden. The annual show is a great day out for everyone including budding young gardeners who enjoyed a fun treasure hunt and for the grown up’s a raffle to win a wheelbarrow with over £300 worth of garden goodies (including the wheel barrow).

Visitors were inspired by our garden designers, including  Ian Cooper – IFC landscapes and Charlotte Phillocx (Let’s Talk) and Sue Bell, were both offering excellent garden advice throughout the weekend.

The Nursery tea room, Purdy’s was extremely busy, offering a delicious range of homemade cakes, light lunches, ice creams, tea, coffee and soft drinks throughout the weekend.

A host of Norfolk guest experts, demonstrators and craft stands attended the garden show including Green Thumb Lawn Care, Home Grown Revolutions, Rutland Willows, Drew Charleton Willow, Yew Turn, Wavy Days, Colin Thompson, Avril Bird and Aylsham Flower Club and Dandelion Nursery

Thank you to everyone who took part and helped us raise so much for a great local cause.
