over 2 years by John Coldron 1 / 5Prompt acknologement would be appreciated. Also an explanaton to my wife who may be still wandering the gardens which did look very nice.
almost 3 years by Chris Walker 5 / 5I â€˜stumbledâ€™ across Sussex Prairies, almost one year ago now, having been introduced to the owners (Paul and Pauline) in a social context. Having now had the pleasure of visiting SP in all seasons, and accepting that I am not even an amateur gardener, I have been stunned by not only the original concept but also by the different seasonal presentations of the whole prairies â€“ from the wonderful winter starkness of now, to the summer colour bursts of flowers and plants and seemingly never ending grasses etc. The garden sculptures lurk, waiting for the unsuspecting visitor, with the various livestock (pigs, sheep, chickens) providing an animated side show, and produce,
about 3 years by Lesley Beehan 5 / 5We made a second visit to Sussex Prairies to see the garden in the autumn. The subtle autumn colours were truly beautiful. Despite the garden being officially closed, Pauline made us very welcome! (The previous review describing her as "frosty," is quite frankly, unbelievable! No surpise that the reviewer is anonymous, I suppose.)
over 3 years by anon 1 / 5i was not impressed in the slightest - don't bother wasting your time on a vist - Pauline in particular frosty and unhelpful. 0 out of 5
over 3 years by Adam Hodge 4 / 5The compelling features about this 'Prairie' garden are the lovely wide walks swirling around like a whirl pool and then the big bangs of colour which are extra-ordinary. A vast drift of Rudbeckia Goldstrum was yelling its face off with sun and joy..amazing. Lots of lovely plant groupings of well partnered flowers.
over 3 years by Anonymous 2 / 5nice garden, but nothing new. as a landscaper it does not really fit in to its surrounding, its just a large field full of mass planting. there no plant sale area,
over 3 years by Marilyn Randall 5 / 5Sussex Prairie Garden is the most visually stunning garden I've ever seen! I'll be back to visit several times a year.
over 3 years by Lesley Beehan 5 / 5My partner and I visited Sussex Prairies today and were blown away by the place! Huge drifts of herbaceous perennials and grasses set amidst 200 year old oaks.
about 5 years by John Brigg 5 / 5I visited the garden in early January, but even with the colours bleached out by winter, the shapes and textures under a glint of frost were at once restful and inviting. It's a diffrent kind of garden based on grasses and unusual plants with meandering paths and quiet pools. I'd love to return when the garden is in full bloom - to wander, take a seat and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
about 5 years by Charlotte 5 / 5This is a truly astounding garden, planted in the naturalistic style ... don't miss it.
about 5 years by Selina Botham 5 / 5A treat of a garden for those who like the naturalistic style. Sweeping curved paths invite you in and blocks of bold planting enfold you. The atmosphere of this garden in autumn when I visited is peaceful and that of gracefully fading blooms rich with wildlife even then. As a designer I appreciate the imaginative use of plants and space in this garden - very inspiring and also low maintenance. I long to design large gardens in this style - its great for wildlife and people alike.
