Nymans Gardens – very beautiful in late March with spring blossom
This National Trust Garden can get very busy when it looks its most beautiful, about now. Visit early – there is only a small car park. It does have wheelchairs to borrow and rugs and paths are reasonably good. Look out for the potting shed and later in the year – the Hankerchief tree. There is also a woodland walk – outside the main garden.
Beautiful for Camellias, Rhododendrons, Magnolias, Roses, Monkey tree, Fritillarys, spring flowers, topiary and views from the High Weald
Anne Messel was a fashion designer – designed a pair of benches (their backs carved with ‘A’ for Anne and ‘M’ for Michael) when she married Michael Count of Rosse and arrived at Birr Castle in Ireland. These benches face opposite each other at Birr Castle and Nymans have a copy of the ‘A’ bench made in wood by a carpenter in this garden and told renovated about ten years ago as falling to pieces.
