The new Hydrangea Path created in the West Garden, earlier this year, to mark Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden’s 40th anniversary is at its colourful best.
“We developed the Hydrangea Path to add interest in the summer season. The multi-coloured hydrangeas add a new aspect to Fairhaven, at a time of year when the garden is very lush and green,” explained Louise Rout, Garden Manager. “Many wildflower species can also be seen, supporting our butterfly and dragonfly populations.”
Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is at South Walsham NR13 6DZ, nine miles east of Norwich, signposted off A47 at B1140 junction, t. 01603 270449 www.fairhavengarden.co.uk

There is wheelchair access throughout the garden, including a Sensory Garden and an accessible boat for trips on the broad from April to October (additional charge). Visitors requiring special facilities are advised to telephone in advance, mobility scooters available.
