Fullers Mill Garden, in West Stow, the lifetime’s work of Bernard Tickner, has attracted record visitor numbers this year.
It doubled its visitor numbers to over 7,000 during the 2018 season.
The garden is owned and run by Perennial, the charity that looks after everyone from the world of horticulture during tough times, and its season runs from early April until the end of September.
Fullers Mill Garden, a tranquil seven-acre woodland garden on the banks of the River Lark, was the life’s work of Mr Tickner, who passed away a year ago.
Perennial is continuing his legacy and maintaining the garden so it can still be enjoyed by the garden loving public.
Annie Dellbridge, head gardener, said: “Fullers Mill Garden has certainly been growing in profile as a visitor attraction so it is wonderful to say that we have doubled the number of visitors this year.
“This year we joined the RHS Partner Garden scheme and we have also held NGS Open Days, hosted the Suffolk Nurseries Plant Fair and made an appearance on the BBC Gardeners’ World TV programme, all of which have helped in boosting visitor numbers and contributing to an excellent season.”
