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 again 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!

Take a look at their website here

Thank you for visiting

Thank you to all our visitors this weekend. We hope you had a lovely time in our amazing little village and our gardens. The weather wasn’t on our side but you came out regardless.

We’d love to see you in four years time.

THANK YOU!

A massive thank you to all who helped and supported the Open Gardens and Flower Festival this weekend. Everything went so well, from the signs (especially the ‘You’re nearly there’ one), our hardworking catering team (and their washer-uppers), the team that manned the Church, our popular local historians, the bottle tombola team of wrappers and sellers, the gardeners and families, and our amazing florists. Thank you also to everyone who lent props for the flower displays, marquees, tables, chairs, bins and tablecloths! We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

I apologise if I have missed anyone. Such a great community team, I am proud to be part of our amazing village of Flowton….

Plant sales

Most of our plant sales will be at Riversdale where homegrown plants from Flowton residents will be on sale. Some other gardens will be selling plants as well.

Priory Plants of Hintlesham have a stall at Flowton Hall and will be selling their plants. Plenty of parking is available at the Hall.
