For almost two decades, a green-fingered husband-and-wife team has been at the helm of a garden nursery.

Now, Ken and Angela Samman, are stepping down from the running of the Garden Enclosure, based next to Banham Zoo, near Attleborough.

The pair has run the garden nursery for 17 years since it first opened in 2006.

Mr Samman said: “We are sorry to be going, but the time has come for us to take a step back.  

“It has been great to have had the opportunity to share our passion for plants and wildlife, and we hope this has encouraged more people to enjoy and make the most of their gardens.  

“Our sincere thanks to everyone who has supported us as an independent business."

Martin Goymour, of Goymour Properties which owns the site, added: “We have been well served with a magnificent range of plants and shrubs, together with summer and winter bedding to match our requirements over the years.

"Their expertise will be much missed.  

“We wish them all the best for the future." 

There are currently no successors for the operation of the garden centre.
