October welcomes the last three gardens opening for the Norfolk National Garden Scheme in 2018. Each one has plenty to interest visitors from exotic annuals to rich autumn colours and fine topiary.
East Ruston Old Vicarage, NR12 9HN, open on Saturday 13th October is a perennial favourite for visitors and always has so much to see from exotic plantings to a desert wash and water features plus plenty of surprises!
On Sunday 14th October Silverstone Farm at North Elmham NR20 5EX opens for the first time for the NGS and belongs to George Carter, one of Britain’s finest garden designers. The two acres of gardens feature a series of interconnecting rooms in a simple palette of evergreens and deciduous trees and shrubs.
The final garden for the year is The Barn at Framingham Earl NR14 7SA and is in fact a 14 hectare arboretum full of autumn colour and fantastic views towards Norwich and Yarmouth. Watch out for the wildlife on two large ponds and a surprising carving in the woods!
All three gardens have teas available.
