Fullers Mill Garden near Bury St Edmunds has announced its opening date for the 2018 season.

The seven-acre garden on the banks of the River Lark, run by horticulture charity Perennial, will be opening its gates from Sunday, April 1 until the end of September.

There will be displays of spring bulbs and blossom on show, as well as refreshments served in the tearoom and plenty of plants for sale.

Perennial, which both owns and manages the garden, will be opening Fullers Mill for the first time since its creator, Bernard Tincker, passed away last November.

Annie Dellbridge, head gardener, said: “The team has been working hard over the winter to make sure it is all looking fabulous, with displays of colourful bulbs and early spring flowering shrubs such as Daphne and Forsythia.
