The money raised at the event at Creake Abbey, between Fakenham and Burnham Market, on Saturday, May 25 will go to the Wells Community Hospital Trust.

More than 1,600 visitors attended the Plant Lovers' Day to view over 30 specialist plant nurseries from across the UK.

Diana Brocklebank Scott, owner of Creake Abbey, said: "We were delighted to have such fantastic turnout.

"The nurserymen were consistently busy all day selling plants and dispensing plant care and gardening advice. The whole event had such a great atmosphere and many visitors made a day of it."
