Share your gardening skills and help the Court Lodge garden come to life. Besides the usual wide range of garden chores we are embarking on the restoration of a Pulham Fernery. At this ealy stage we will be doing more of an archaeological dig than gardening but it'll be a very exciting project.
If you've a few hours to spare and would like to learn something new or indulge a passion you have, then we'd love to hear from you. There's a variety of positions for volunteers, or tell us what interests you most and we will endeavour to find something that will match.
If you'd like to help us by volunteering your time just give us a call. We'd love to hear from you.
Please call 01892 891588 or email Ian.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Pulham family became renowned for creating a wide range of artificial landscapes, from small, exquisitely planted rockeries and ferneries to grottoes and temples, from elaborate water gardens, complete with chasms and cascades, to massive coastal cliffs. These fashionable bespoke landscapes brought together many of the hallmarks of 19th- century garden design, including the interplay of landscaping, botany and geology, engineering and architecture, and innovation in materials and techniques. Collectively, they gave tangible form to the Victorian passions for travel, for plant collecting and for gardening.
