The Mil­len­nium Gar­den at Pen­sthorpe Nat­u­ral Park is one of Nor­folk’s truly unique out­door spa­ces. De­signed by worl­drenowned plants­man Piet Ou­dolf, the gar­den con­tains over 100 dif­fer­ent plants made up of over 90 dif­fer­ent species of peren­ni­als, 22 dif­fer­ent types of grass, and six dif­fer­ent types of shrub.

The gar­den no­to­ri­ously shows off Ou­dolf’s fa­mous peren­nial drifts of sub-alpine, steppe and prairie plants. Launched in 1999 it was the first public gar­den to be de­signed by an emerg­ing Ou­dolf, still rel­a­tively un­known in the UK at that time.

Ten years later, by which point he was recog­nised as one of the world’s most fore­most plants­man, Ou­dolf re­turned to over­see the re­design and plant­ing of his orig­i­nal gar­den with a decade’s more ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt. It is one of five gar­dens at Pen­sthorpe and has be­come a real fo­cal point for gar­den lovers all year round.

To cel­e­brate Pen­sthorpe Nat­u­ral Park’s 30th an­niver­sary this sum­mer, EDP Nor­folk mag­a­zine has teamed up with the park to of­fer one lucky win­ner the unique op­por­tu­nity to en­joy cham­pagne af­ter­noon tea for four peo­ple in the Mil­len­nium Gar­den’s gazebo. Soak up the sen­sual blend of colours and the tran­quil plant­ing scheme from this charm­ing vista within the heart of the gar­den.

Plus, the win­ner will also re­ceive an an­nual pass to the re­serve for four peo­ple, en­abling them to re­turn through­out the year. But that’s not all. Three run­ners-up will each win an an­nual pass for four peo­ple, giv­ing them a year to ac­quaint them­selves with the beauty of the re­serve.
