John and Brenda Foster will be opening their garden at Gable House in Redisham for their annual bulb sale.

The event will be held on Sunday, September 3, from 11am to 5pm.

Situated between Halesworth and Beccles, the one-acre garden contains a huge range of plants which have been acquired over many years. This month's opening gives free entry and the chance for gardeners to purchase many of the unusual and choice bulbs and plants grown at Gable House, many not obtainable from the usual sources.

Bulbs include hardy cyclamen, narcissus, erythronium, various forms of colchicums often called 'Naked Ladies' or 'Autumn Crocus'. The true crocus species will include many autumn flowering forms from around the world.

Those wishing to visit will be able to enjoy homemade light lunches and afternoon tea in the garden.
