East Sussex July Gardens

With summer in full swing, there’s plenty of opportunities to visit gardens in East Sussex throughout the month of July…

33 Wivelsfield Road, Saltdean

The garden, created in 2016, landscaped during 2017 and planting started later that yr. Split over three levels filled with colourful perennials, annuals, grasses, and succulents planted in the ground and in containers. The formal garden leads onto a wildflower meadow extending onto the downs, giving spectacular views of both the ocean and South Downs National Park. Front garden revamped in 2023. Opens Thursday 25th and Saturday 27th July.

Marchants Hardy Plants, Laughton

Atmospheric 2 acre garden and plant nursery with striking backdrop of the South Downs. Featured on Carol Klein’s Great British Gardens TV series, the garden is imaginatively designed and sensitively planted with a rich tapestry of unusual herbaceous plants, and graceful grasses add to the interest. Opens Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st July, pre-booking essential.
