Iris and paeonia festival in Langmere, near Dickleburgh

An iris and paeonia festival will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 10am to 3pm at Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery.

The festival is the latest in a series of plant events hosted by the nursery in Langmere, near Dickleburgh.

Nursery owner Ben Potterton said: 'The aim of the iris and paeonia festival is to promote local growers, quality plants and seasonality, with mid-May being an excellent time to see both irises and paeonias in full flower.'

The festival brings together some of the region's best nurseries who will be offering a selection of seasonal plants.

Visitors will also be able to view displays of locally grown bearded irises or join one of the two free talks on paeonias at 11am and irises at 2pm in the newly opened Waveney Gallery adjacent to Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery.
