What's happening Event diary Stody Estate Open Gardens The spectacular and unusual Stody Lodge Gardens is well-known for the sheer intensity of its planting together with a carefully planned riot of colour on a grand scale, 14 acres in total. The extensive collection of rhododendrons and azaleas, magnolias and camellias, all underplanted with bluebells and spring bulbs, continue to make this family garden one of the most exciting to visit in the country. The 4-acre Water Gardens, approached via the long rhododendron-lined drive, are considered to be the largest mass planting of azalea mollis (around 2,000 plants) in the country. Dogs on leads welcome. Home-made teas provided by The Norfolk Hospice. A National Garden Scheme event. There is a free car park and plant stall.
