Photo Gallery: Norfolk Spring Garden Show 2011

Thousands of gardening enthusiasts turned up over the weekend at the fifth annual Norfolk Spring Garden Show at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich.

Dubbed by the organisers as 'the biggest Norfolk Spring Garden Show yet', there was plenty for people to do and see.

Stall owners Ashleigh Garside and Will Waganeer of their travelling business 'Bulb Garden', were advising people on their bulb choices.

Miss Garside explained why they were at the show and said: 'It's been very busy here and we've been happy to help. We're here to inspire people with their gardening in Norwich and Norfolk.'

The event, which was organised by the Aztec Garden Show, included a 'how to' expert zone, a garden and home marquee, artistic show gardens, a flower show and hundreds of stalls.

Local tradesmen and specialists were also offering people advice on undertaking a gardening project.

There was also a shopping village for people to browse and purchase seasonal plants and shrubs, outdoor furniture and ornaments, tools and gifts.

The well known Festival of Food event also returned, displaying local and national produce.

Stephen and Carole Carter, from Ormesby St Margaret, explained what it is about the event that keeps them coming every year.

'It is lovely and this is the busiest I have ever seen it. The show is nice for people who want to get out into the garden and it is also a great way to encourage children to get involved in outdoor activity,' said Mrs Carter.

'This will be our third year now,' Mr Carter added.

The Norfolk Spring Garden Show was held from Friday and ended today.

The event will be followed up with the Norfolk Summer Garden Show which will be held on August 19 to 21 this year.
