The Aylsham Garden Show raised a staggering £1,400 for charities the Benjamin Foundation and the Aylsham Roman Project.
The show at Woodgate Nursery was attended by more than 4,500 people across the two day event.
Some of Norfolk's best garden designers created show gardens, in an RHS Chelsea Flower Show style event.
This year, the winning design by public vote went to Gill Gorringe and James Hawke from Perfect Surroundings Garden Design, with second place going to Ian Cooper from IFC landscapes.
Peter Purdy, founder of Woodgate Nursery, said: 'Our garden show raised a staggering amount for local charities and everyone had a fantastic weekend, with the garden show getting better every year, I'm already looking forward to the 2018 designs!'
