We were just walking along the High Street when we came upon this lovely garden. It is great to see the generosity of a local man so recently giving his community such a prize for the future. Perhaps we only expect it in the dim and distant past - but the gift was only made in 1988 and the Garden was only opened in 1990, the year after John Charles Edward Bowen's (1909-1989) death.

Spent a pleasant 30 minutes here, which included a sit down on one of the many benches. We enjoyed reading all the information. Nice place to have a picnic or if you just want to reflect. Our June visit in hot weather saw plenty of colourful plants, great perennials, and a wild section.

Not sure what part is supposed to be peaceful.... we walked round and out because of the unsavoury looking characters in there... may as well have been the local library on a council estate where the local alchies and junkies go... awful and really not that much to see...

Whenever I am down near Petersfield I pop in to the Physic Garden. It is an oasis of quiet. The well placed benches allow you to sit and relax or sit and chat with a friend. When I was there the apples were ripening and the flowers were out.

Back to the physic garden to see what springtime brings to the flowers, trees and herbs. Wasn’t disappointed as the photos show. This is a tranquil oasis in the heart of the town which many probably just walk past. We sat down and drink a tea and hot choc whilst admiring the garden.

This is a well kept secret that we stumbled on years ago and each time we visit Petersfield we go and pay it homage, with fond memories of the sense of well-being we enjoy each time.
Do yourself a favour - stop over at Waitrose or M & S and buy a simple lunch snack and walk a few paces,no more, to go and enjoy it in a quiet beautiful space as you watch the robin do exactly the same thing in front of your eyes.
To know that this is such a loved and well-kept place where the earth and what it nurtures is tendered and shared generously with ordinary people who pass by adds to what one takes in.
I'm challenged to share this with you rather than keep it a secret!

Thank you so much for your kind review. It encourages our volunteers to know the garden brings pleasure. Sorry I did not meet you when you visited as I believe you have a lovely wild flower garden in Hermanus which I would have liked to have heard about.

Wr were walking our lunch off from La Piazzetta and I decided to revisit this garden with my friends. I have not been there for some 7 or 8 years. It is a little oasis of peace and calm in Petersfield. Unfortunately whilst there are some intersting plants, the place was looking a little unloved in areas and I note an appeal for volunteers,

Petersfield Physic Garden is a beautiful oasis of tranquility and in the summer the planting is of its best. Often used as a place to sit and read or eat your sandwiches it is appreciated by all who have discovered it. The planting is labelled and interesting to walk around finding out about the look and smell of the plants. There are also trees. It is not very large and need not take a great deal of your time to visit unless you want to linger and rest a while. I think it is best in the summer months but also worth a visit at other times of year so that you might find you want to come back again to see another season. Free entry.

Enjoyed a half hour quiet visit here with friends who did not know about it but who will certainly visit again.
