We visited this on what turned out to be a rather dull and overcast day in October so wasn't the ideal weather conditions to see it at its best. The gardens are not particularly extensive, I believe they are about eight acres but they seem...More

This prairie garden is very similar to a number of Pete Oudolf designs you can see in the UK with one very significant difference. Here you can walk among the plants, many of which are at least two meters tall. This adds another whole dimension...More

This is a great garden with an unusual layout and fantastic planting. Intriguing sculptures complete the layout. Garden and plant shop are integrated. Unfortunately, the gardens sit in an otherwise featureless landscape.

Plenty of parking. £7 entry fee. Easily accessible with paths meandering through the swaths of plants. A wide selection of cakes. We thought that £15 was expensive for a sandwich, two waters , one apple juice and a scone . The cashier added it up...More

I try to visit regularly as the garden itself changes and the ever varying weather adds a different perspective each time. So much colour with the grasses swaying in the breeze. Awesome. The garden will be ten years old in 2018 so watch out for...More

No traditional flower beds here, instead impressive swathes of planting. The expansive beds offer walk-throughs to admire many hundreds of the same plant grouped together. There no 'rooms' as such and few trees - a wide-open environment under big skies and with views of the...More

What a pretty place! This is a more unusual and slightly different garden to visit. There are wonderful areas of architectural grasses and plants, the "sea" of yellow Rebeccia was a particular highlight. Great tea room with a wonderful selection of cakes and scones.

This garden is situated just outside the Sussex village of Henfield and we visited with friends, who live nearby. We are keen gardeners and we thoroughly enjoyed this spectacular example of Prairie planting; vast swathes of Rudbeckias were in full flower when we visited, plus...More
