Chance to explore quirky Aylsham garden
Nature lovers will be able to enjoy historic trees and quirky features during a series of open garden events in the heart of a town.
The four-acre garden at Burgh House in Aylsham will be open to small groups on Friday February 21, Friday March 21, Friday April 18, and Friday May 16.
Tours are being held to raise money for Aylsham in Bloom.
The garden features established woodland, landscaped ponds, quirky features such as a bottle tree made from empty bottles plus a wide range of spring plants.
Depending on the weather and the month, there could be snowdrops, aconites, celandines, violets, daffodils, bluebells or wood anemones.

Many of the trees surrounding Burgh House date from the early to mid 19th century and include notable specimens of beech, oak, sycamore and copper beech.
The garden has an interesting past - in 1987, 42 mature trees were lost and last year an artesian well was sunk so pond water levels could be raised in anticipation of a future waterfall project.
