Another Gala and another resounding success for the Norfolk Group. Sunday 5th March at East Tuddenham Village Hall saw the latest Spring Gala organised by Kathy Gray and supported by an army of members. 85 people attended and listened to two excellent lectures. The first was in the morning by Andrew Turvey, newly appointed Head Gardener at Hatfield House, about developments at Myddelton House in Enfield and Wrest Park. Following another of NPH's splendid lunches Troy Scott Smith, Head Gardener at Sissinghurt, spoke about two gardens he had worked at, The Courts in Willtshire, Bodnant and at length about his present garden and developments at Sissinghurst.

Sunday 23rd April, St. George's Day, was a bright but chilly day for the first group garden visit of 2017. Wretham Lodge was the venue and the garden was full of spring colour including tulips, bluebells, cowslips and many more. After a walk through the grounds tea and cake was served on the terrace following which many members visited the village Church opposite the house.

The Spring Plant Sale, the first of the group sales of 2017, took place at Hethersett Village Hall on Sunday, 30th April. A, thankfully, dry although rather breasy morning saw a huge number of people visit the sales field - probably the most NPH have seen attend one of their plant sales so far. After buying their plants many visitors enjoyed home made refreshments with bacon rolls being one of the favourite orders! A new gallery is linked under previous events.

On Wednesday 21st June the group visited the garden at Kettle Hill, Blakeney and on Sunday 9th July Battleley's Cottage at Wortham. A gallery of pictures for both gardens is linked under previous events.

Over the last few weeks there have been two further events for members to enjoy. Firstly on Wednesday and Thursday 26th and 27th July Simon Harrup led a Wild Flower Walk on Buxton Heath. This was followed by the group Summer Social at Lexham Hall on the evening of Friday 4th August. Members enjoyed Pimms, a selection of canapes and wine and then wandered around the gardens on what was a very pleasant evening. Pictures from both events are listed under previous events.
