    My wife and I visited this garden in early September 2013. We were delighted to see how many plants and shrubs were still in full flower. The borders were aglow with colour, creating a beautiful multi-coloured tapestry in waves across the well manicured lawns. A site not to be missed by anyone visiting East Sussex and Kent, the Garden of England.

    We were amazed to discover that this enormous garden with all of its variety of plants, shrubs and trees is tended to by just one lady gardener. A horticultural super hero in our eyes.

    If you can only visit one garden in this part of England make sure it is this one. Not to be missed by anyone with a love of outstanding English gardens.

    A fine garden for an easy walk and the opportunity to purchase plants seen right away at the garden center. The garden is young but full of interesting plants. The borders are quite full but the lawns and paths are open so it doesn't feel too close.

    As a display garden it is well labelled with richly floriferous borders and good colour combinations.
    Some areas just didnt do it for me..the formal area with the rill or the triangular structure walk..eek, but there is plenty to compensate.
    The garden centre is fantastic for an excellent range of fairly priced interesting plants.
