About Fullers Mill Garden

Fullers Mill Garden is an enchanting and tranquil waterside and woodland garden, situated on the banks of the River Lark at West Stow in Suffolk. 

It combines a beautiful site of light dappled woodland with a fabulous collection of rare and unusual shrubs, perennials, lilies and marginal plants, collected over the course of 50 years by the creator of the garden Bernard Tickner.

In 2013 the late Bernard Tickner, MBE gifted the garden to Perennial, the only UK charity dedicated to helping all those who work in or are retired from horticulture, in times of need.  Head Gardener Annie Dellbridge and her team of gardeners and volunteers now maintain the garden for the enjoyment of visitors from April to October.
