THE Bays Nursery and Acer Centre in Outwell won gold for the fourth time at Sandringham Flower Show.

The Downham Road business was awarded a large gold medal for their stunning Japanese Maple (Acer) display in the Horticultural Trades Marquee.

The weather this year has been kind to Acers as there has not been long periods of scorching sun and there has been plenty of rain.

The delighted proprietors said a great deal of effort goes into planning and preparing for a show like Sandringham.

It is a big job for a small nursery run by Jane and Nigel Mann who were assisted for the show by their friends Margaret and Richard Baines and Chris Williams.

Without the help of these people, the proprietors said it could not have been done.

In presenting the award, the judges commented they were very impressed with the display.
