Last Open Gardens of the Year
East Ruston Old Vicarage, NR12 9HN, open on Saturday October 13, 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 October 14 Silverstone Farm at North Elmham, NR20 5EX opens for the first time for the NGS. It 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 of 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!
