The Woodgate Nursery’s Garden Show was a great success, attended by over 4500 people over the weekend; and raising £1400 for The Benjamin Foundation and Aylsham Roman Project.

Inspired by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Woodgate Nursery Garden Show has grown into a two day event featuring some of Norfolk’s best garden designers creating wonderful show gardens to inspire all who visit.

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 2018 designs!’

This year’s show was packed full of inspiration for the gardener, from the beautiful show gardens to local experts offering guidance and services, including lawn care specialists, willow fencing and oak framed garden buildings. It was also a great day out for all budding young gardeners who enjoyed a fun treasure hunt, face painting and of course ice cream.

This year’s show was bigger and better with a new craft marquee full of local craft, birds of prey and The Aylsham Brass band performing on the Sunday.

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

Peter Purdy would especially like to thank all the exhibitors who put in such a great deal of effort over the weekend to make the 2017 Woodgate Garden Show the most enjoyable yet.
