Raveningham Gardens will once again be opening to the public for snowdrop season.
Visitors can enjoy drifts of snowdrops in the main garden as well as tours by gardening expert Richard Hobbs.
The gardens will be open from Thursday, February 1 to Wednesday, February 28 - excluding Saturdays, from 11am to 4pm each day, or dusk if earlier.
Proceeds from the openings on February 11 and February 18 will go to Priscilla Bacon Lodge Hospice in Norwich.
