For gardening groups and horticultural societies

Many gardening and horticultural societies visit Bressingham Gardens so when you are planning your agenda for the year, why not plan ahead to include the Bressingham Gardens as one of your future outings?

This was a comment written in our visitor’s book by a visiting society :

“Totally enjoyable and inspiring. Gorgeous shapes and colour and excellent tour. Many thanks.”
Somersham Garden Club, Cambridgeshire. October 2013.

Below is a letter sent to us from Groby Gardening Society following their visit in 2012 (printed with their kind permission).

Groby Gardening Society
“The society had such a wonderful day at Bressingham on the 26th July that I felt obliged to record our great appreciation. All the staff we encountered were helpful, cheery and polite. The variety of interests was astounding and more than a few of our elderly party thoroughly enjoyed the Steam Museum. However, the jewels in your crown must be the gardens. It was unanimously agreed that these were THE best we have visited. Over the years we have been to stately homes, National Trust properties and the flagship gardens of the RHS, but none compare with yours. The weather helped and many thanks for laying on the wall to wall sunshine we enjoyed!

Also, many thanks for your help in the organisation of our visit. Yours sincerely, Alvar Johnson (on behalf of Groby Gardening Society)”
