Organised in partnership with the Norfolk Nursery Network, the event will see 16 Norfolk nurseries selling a range of plants. They will also have experts on hand to answer gardening questions and solve green-fingered dilemmas.

Deb Jordan, owner of the park, said: “The event, which is now in its eighth year, is proving a mainstay on gardeners’ calendars and provides a source of great inspiration, as well as an opportunity to see our own gardens at a special discounted price.”

Entry costs £1 per adult and children are free. Donations are welcomed and proceeds raised will go to charity The Escape Project – Family Action.

There will also be reduced entry to all visitors during the day on September 9.
