Closed down years ago. It is now just a scruffy yard full of tat and broken stuff, with a few gardening/building businesses nearby. Oh, and a burger van. That's it. Finito. Nothing to do or see.

Called while travelling home from Norfolk following pervious visits. Still signposted from the main road and car park but closed down. Don't bother wasting time here.

Not many African violets at the time we went, lovely tea room and pond with large fish and wooden furniture but if you want violets it is not worth the visit.

Not to be recommended this place has gone way down hill from when it first opened by Tony Clements but now there are more dead plants than alive ones.
