Gate Farm open event

Ever wondered how eggs are produced and graded? Gate Farm are holding open visits during the Flowton in Flower weekend to show how this is done – it’s not just chicken laying eggs!!  Pop along for 12.30pm and 3.00pm.


EADT Suffolk magazine and Suffolk Day

It is exciting to see our Flowton in Flower event listed in the East Anglian Daily Times Suffolk magazine – especially as something to do over the Suffolk Day Big Weekender!

Suffolk Day is on 21st June.

It’s worth noting that they have the wrong address listed – we are definitely still holding it in Flowton with the postcode of IP8 4LG!

Cream teas!

Now who doesn’t love a cream tea in the Suffolk countryside?!

Our fabulous cream teas will be on sale in the churchyard between 3pm and 5pm on both days, and at only £3.50 they are great value.

Military vehicle display

No garden on display but a show from the RESTORE and DISPLAY MILITARY GROUP so do come and look round their vehicles. The RDMG go to military shows and rallies and on trips to Europe, USA, and Australia. The vehicles range from a military bicycle, motor bikes, Jeeps, Austin Champs, Land Rovers through to larger trucks GMC, Diamond T, Ward la France which is a tank recovery vehicle, a bulldozer and even an army low loader.

Shrubland park nurseries

We are delighted to welcome Shrubland Park Nurseries to our Flowton in Flower event in June 2019. They will be selling some of their amazing plants from the churchyard, close to the refreshments!
