Fullers Mill Garden Welcomes Record Numbers of Visitors

It has been a bumper season at Fullers Mill Garden near Bury St Edmunds, which has received record visitor numbers this year.

Fullers Mill Garden doubled its visitor numbers to over 7,000 visits during the 2018 season. 

The garden is owned and run by Perennial, the charity that looks after everyone from the world of horticulture during tough times, and its season runs from early April until the end of September.  

Fullers Mill Garden near Bury St Edmunds, a tranquil seven-acre woodland garden on the banks of the River Lark, was the life’s work of Bernard Tickner, who passed away a year ago. 

Perennial is continuing his legacy and maintaining the garden so it can still be enjoyed by the garden loving public. 

Annie Dellbridge, Head Gardener at Fullers Mill Garden says: “Fullers Mill Garden has certainly been growing in profile as a visitor attraction so it is wonderful to say that we have doubled the number of visitors this year. This year we joined the RHS Partner Garden scheme and we have also held NGS Open Days, hosted the Suffolk Nurseries Plant Fair and made an appearance on the BBC Gardeners’ World TV programme, all of which have helped in boosting visitor numbers and contributing to an excellent season.”
