The Stowbridge Story

Our show gardens are the culmination of the story of how an idea became an award-winning business and beautiful partnership between our directors – Norfolk farmer John Wootton and his partner, Claire Brutnall, who teamed up to form an exciting new venture. 


Stowbridge began as little more than an unused part of the farm, but has slowly transformed into the heart of Foras. Hidden away in a secluded corner of the Norfolk countryside, the showroom and gardens combine Foras’ beautiful designs with the wide open skies this county is famous for. Our visitors often stay for much longer than they anticipated!


We’re a family-run business, and pride ourselves on attentive, personal customer service; a warmth you will soon experience upon a visit to us at Stowbridge. Let us welcome you and guide you around this magical place – we’re sure you’ll fall in love!


Don’t forget to say hello to our dogs, Willow and Cooper, on your visit – and make a day of it with a stop by our local country pub for a hearty Norfolk lunch.

Be Inspired

Wander through beautiful gardens filled with hundreds of Foras original designs, and see the world as you walk. In pursuit of the finest materials, we source natural stones and porcelains from all over Europe, North Africa, and South Asia; all selected for their unique properties.


Our extensive show garden is ‘better by design’, crafted to inspire you with a variety of planted areas and distinctive arrangements, helping you to visualise our pieces in a garden setting.


Juniper Sky Garden

The Juniper Sky Garden is a celebration of our continued involvement with the Chelsea Flower Show. We are immensely proud of our two gold medal wins at past shows, and wished to dedicate an area of Stowbridge to this meaningful part of the Foras story. 


A Chelsea Garden is a chance to showcase what can be achieved in a small space; we have built our very own piece of Chelsea here in the heart of Norfolk. 


Juniper Sky is compact, but a clever use of angles and levels makes it feel spacious. To mimic the main avenue at Chelsea, the garden has its own miniature version, lined with water features. It’s truly a garden for all seasons, with striking structural plants offering interest throughout the year. At its heart is the Juniper Sky Gin Bar, open for special Foras events; there’s no better place to try our extensive selection of local Norfolk spirits. 

Fen Glade Woodland

Our Fen Glade woodland is a change of pace from the open skies of the Juniper Garden, and offers a contrasting setting to experience Foras designs. The woods are maintained and landscaped for optimum tree health and offer two signposted walks for Foras customers, one through the woods and one longer route across the fields; the Fen Glade is a chance to see the true beauty of our area of Fenland and can’t be missed.
