A replica of a 900 year old long boat found in Norfolk is to be the centrepiece of one of the gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show.

It's been made at the International Boat Building Training college in Lowestoft in Suffolk for local designer Gary Breeze who won a gold medal at last year's show.

The whole idea behind the garden has been inspired by the boat which was found beside the River Chet in Norfolk four years ago by Environment Agency workers.

This is the garden they are creating for the flower show.

The garden will include plants which were and are native to the Broadland area. Plants that grow in the dykes that criss-cross the marshes.
