Sussex Prairie Garden

RHS Partner Garden.

“ One of the most beautiful gardens in Sussex ”

BN5 Magazine

A stunning prairie in the heart of Sussex

Sussex Prairie garden opened to the public in 2009, just one year after planting. We count ourselves amongst a  handful of large new  gardens, designed and created in the 20th and 21st century, in Great Britain.

We are Britain’s largest “Prairie,” or “Naturalistic,” garden, with eight acres of stunning garden to roam around. Unlike most gardens of a comparable size, we have no castle or stately home! We designed and planted the garden ourselves, on Pauline’s family farm in West Sussex. Instead of armies of servants and gardeners, we planted all 35 000 plants with help of amazing friends and family!

Our garden encourages exploration using a network of small wood chip paths which snake through the huge borders. Come and visit, please do walk on the grass and in the borders! Sussex Prairies-an extraordinary garden created by ordinary people!
