A new garden display has been opened at a Norwich garden centre to inspire visitors for their own gardening creations.

The Notcutts garden was opened on May 11 at the Notcutts Garden Centre in Daniels Road, Norwich.

There are four separate areas within the garden - The Retreat, a tranquil spot to sit and enjoy the view over the garden. Shady Corner - which is filled with tree ferns, azaleas and rhododendrons that thrive in shade. Seasonal Colour, which is alive with vibrant colours all-year-round and The Table, in which culinary kitchen plants and herbs are the star of the show.

Featuring over 700 plants from 60 different varieties the garden took horticultural experts more than three weeks to complete.

Richard Greenacre, centre manager at Notcutts Norwich said: 'We're delighted with the beautiful Notcutts Garden at Notcutts Norwich and we'd like to thank everyone who joined us at our official opening event.
