Notcutts Donates Bulbs to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden

Notcutts Norwich Garden Centre have donated end of season bulbs to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden.

The gift was facilitated by Ray Etheridge, one of Fairhaven's regular garden volunteers, who works at Notcutts. Ray explained: “Every year Notcutts donates end of season stock to charity. I suggested that Fairhaven would be a good location for our bulbs and was delighted to be able to bring four sacks of daffodils, along with tulips, and crocus to plant in the garden.”

Fairhaven Gardener Lydia Sutton is pictured with Ray planting some of the bulbs.

Louise Rout, General Manager, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden said: “Thank you so much to Notcutts for this wonderful gift, which will enhance the garden during the spring and will be much enjoyed by our staff, volunteers and visitors.”

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is at South Walsham, NR13 6DZ. The garden is open every day, 10am to 4pm until the end of February, then 10am to 5pm from March onwards. The tearoom opens at 9.15am for breakfast. T. 01603 270449,www.fairhavengarden.co.uk

  • Head to Fairhaven Garden for The Great Bear Hunt

    The Great Bear Hunt returns to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, at South Walsham, on Saturday, March 21 and will run until the autumn.

    The 10 bears carved by Fairhaven volunteer Andy Usher have been in hibernation over the winter and are ready for another season in the garden. There are also two additional bonus bears, recently carved by Andy, for visitors to discover.

    Armed with a trail map, showing location clues, families can have fun hunting the bears, learn about the trees in the garden and make up names for the bears.

    Andy Usher explained: “I have volunteered in the garden for the last six years. I am chainsaw qualified, bought a carving saw and began experimenting with creating animals. This led to my idea to carve the bears out of Fairhaven wood and give families a fun activity. All the bears are next to well-known trees and the idea is for children to discover some of the species that make up the woodland garden, as well as enjoy hunting the bears.”

  • Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden Winter Coppicing Campaign

    The gardening team and volunteers at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, are working on their annual winter hazel coppicing campaign. Every year they coppice a section of hazel on rotation, using a battery operated chainsaw to minimise the noise.

    This ancient woodland management practice involves cutting young stems down to a stump. The tree then regrows and is cut again on a seven year cycle. All the young stems are used. They are sold in plant sales as pea sticks and bean poles and they are also being bundled up into faggots, which will build up the paths on sections of the Broads and Ranworth Walks.
