Sue Collins and Alan Innes will open their half acre Taverham plot as part of the National Garden Scheme, on Sunday, July 7.

And money raised from the plants and refreshments on sale will be donated to support the Taverham toddler Harry Deeba, diagnosed with neuroblastoma aged just one.

The Taverham garden is opening in conjunction with Chris and Wendy Fitch's garden, in nearby Drayton.

And the couple are fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the fifth year, after beginning fundraising when a friend's eight-year-old son, Jacob Hart, was diagnosed with the condition.

A charity ball for the cause will be held at Carrow Road, on Saturday, July 6, hosted by Jacob's parents, Lucy and Andy Hart.

Entry from 11am to 5pm costs £6 for both 27 St Edmunds Road, Taverham, NR8 6NY, and 9 Bellamonte Crescent, Drayton, NR8 6EJ, with children going free.
