Their hard work has proved so popular that a special coach trip of enthusiasts is planning to come from Downham Market to their home this weekend to see the garden on a private tour.

Maria and Paul Nielsen Bom put many hours into making sure their garden looks beautiful all year round and their hard work and green fingered dedication paid off when they had almost 100 visitors over the weekend bringing in £100 for charity.

Mrs Nielsen Bom, of Henson Road, March, said: “It went fantastically. Paul worked very hard and the garden looked beautiful.”

The garden will be open again on September 6 and 7 for another national open gardens weekend.
