An 8 acre garden planted in the naturalistic style. The garden comprises seven huge beds in a formal layout. Within each bed the visitor finds a network small paths, allowing them to get right in amongst the huge drifts of perennials and ornamental grasses.
The garden is surrounded by mature oak trees, with views of the Sussex Weald on all sides. Our 650 different varieties of plant provide colour and show from June until October. There are many unusual and rare cultivars as well as various art works displayed in the garden.
Mrs. McBride's family have owned the farm for over 50 years. The garden was designed in 2007 and planted the following year with help from 40 of the McBride's friends. Sussex Prairies has been featured in many glossy garden magazines and was also shown on BBC Gardener's World in October 2010.
Sussex Prairies has been an RHS partner garden since 2013.
