Description of Garden

Tucked behind tall hedges, Merriments 4-acre RHS Partner Garden is a hidden treasure for garden lovers. Our beautiful colour-themed borders of inspiring planting are set amongst the rolling countryside of East Sussex and evolve through the seasons from Spring pastels to the fiery Autumns hues of the many trees. With a relaxed, classic, contemporary style, you can enjoy both formal and wild plantings, all set on a gently sloping, South facing site with good parking and easy access. Many of the plants in our garden are grown on site in our Nursery and are available to buy in the Plant Centre.

History Of Garden

Relatively newly planted, but rapidly maturing garden on a sloping site designed to present ideas for and display the plants sold in the excellent garden centre which is part of the same complex. Full of interesting plantings and colour, it includes a gravel garden, water garden, Monet pergola and has the potential to become a significant attraction in its own right.

During winter 2004, a new wheelchair friendly entrance was created and stunning bridge erected over the large ponds and early 2005 will see the building of a wonderful formal garden with fountain in the old, now unused, entrance area.

Many of the unusual plants seen growing in the garden can be found for sale in the extensive adjoining nursery.
