Woodgate Nursery garden show

Come Outside – To the Woodgate Nursery Charity Garden Show this June!

The Woodgate Nursery garden show will take place this year at the Nursery in Alysham on the 8th and 9th of June. The show will feature over 60 exhibitors with a wide variety of craft items on display and for sale. The features of the show include the new floral marquee demonstrating stunning floral displays.

The show will take place on June 8th and 9th between 10am – 4.30pm and will aim to build on the success of last year’s event which welcomed more than 5,000 people. There is a £1 voluntary gate entrance donation (per person), with the money benefiting our 2019 chosen charities – the Aylsham Scouts and the Aylsham Roman Project.

Inspired by the Royal Horticulture Society’s (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show, local garden designers will be battling for the people’ vote to be crowned the winner of the best garden design. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite garden for a chance to win £75 worth of gardening vouchers.

The show also includes a variety of food and drink stalls packed with tasty treats and savoury goods, as well as a craft marquee, filled with wonderful gift ideas and inspiration plus the garden exhibitors have all manner of gardening items for sale.

Not only can attendees pick up the latest flowers from the nursery, but they can learn more about their garden from the show’s friendly and knowledgeable exhibitors.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy entertainment for all ages including children’s games, face painting, birds of prey, arts and crafts marquee, the Aylsham Brass Band on Sunday afternoon and charity stalls. Purdy’s Tea Room will be serving a delicious range of homemade cakes, light lunches, ice creams throughout the weekend, plus a delicious hog roast available throughout the weekend.

The show sponsored by Stuart Morton Architectural Design is dog friendly, with well-behaved dogs welcome on leads.

About Woodgate Nursery

A traditional plant nursery located just outside the beautiful market town of Aylsham, the business was established in 1982 by Peter Purdy as a hobby.

With a passion for gardening, Peter started growing plants on a plot of land backing on to this house, selling his creations by the roadside. Fast forward a few years and today this hobby has grown into Woodgate Nursery. A thriving business stocking more than 700 varieties of Herbaceous Perennials, shrubs, vegetable plants, trees, ferns, roses, hedging and bog plants.

But what hasn’t changed is Peter’s wish to provide customers with the best possible range of plants along with friendly, personal service.
