More than 350 people enjoyed the snowdrops day held at Gable House in Redisham on Sunday.
Owners John and Brenda Foster opened their garden to visitors as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS).
The keen gardeners have been doing this for the past 38 years and have raised more than £40,000 for the NGS charities.
Mrs Foster said: “We had a really lovely day with 356 people coming through the garden gate.
“We also provided more than 50 soup lunches and it was a busy day for us but one which was thoroughly enjoyable.”
The couple have been collecting snowdrops for more than 30 years and the one-acre plot has a superb collection.
“This is always a popular event and one which we look forward to every year,” said Mrs Foster.
“With 356 people through the gate we were able to raise £2,000 for the NGS and a further £250 for St Peter’s Church.”
She added: “We were fortunate to have help from our family and neighbours on the day.”
