Artist Rosemary Carruthers is opening her small but magical garden in Fakenham this Sunday, June 1, from 2 to 5.30pm.

Teas will be available and there will be plants and home made cakes for sale.

The garden, which has featured in EDP Norfolk Magazine, The English Garden, and Gardens Illustrated, is being opened in aid of the Fakenham Choral Society.

Packed with dense planting, the rectangular plot has a lower terrace, winding gravel paths, a two-tiered pond and a woodland area. Saplings set over 30 years ago when Rosemary first started to create her garden are now elegant mature trees underplanted with bluebells.
