Review of Sussex Prairie Garden

Posted on by Julie SCustomer visited Jul 2016

An absolutely first rate garden, a true delight.
This establishment has a warm and friendly feel right from the first moment you glimpse the colourful roadside sign.
There is a huge well maintained field offering free parking with a clear entrance marked with bunting.
RHS members can enter free of charge and you can take your dogs with you.
The site is level with excellent pathways so strolling around is very easy. You're also never far away from the tea shop if you need a break! The large table laden with homemade cakes and big mugs of tea and coffee are worth the trip alone.
The gardens are absolutely beautiful, so well designed with impressive planting combinations. I felt very inspired. Photographers dream! I liked the buffalo too!
Exceptionally friendly staff, very welcoming.
Plant shop was very interesting as had lots of things you don't normally see in your average garden centre and not too expensive. I particularly liked the plant supports crafted by a blacksmith.

We've been wanting to visit Sussex Prairie gardens for at least a couple of years and was it worth the wait? Absolutely!
The gardens have been featured on BBC Gardeners World and in various magazines - you can see why.
Mass plantings of echinacea, rudbeckia, grasses and aliums amongst many others.
Our kids loved winding their way through the paths amongst towering grasses as well as spotting the many species of butterflies.
With RHS membership and 2 young kids it only cost us £7 to get in - bargain! We certainly made up for that in the excellent nursery and tea room though.
Super-friendly and helpful service from everybody.
Only wish we could have had longer there - will certainly be back.

We loved this garden, we loved the personality of the owners that shone through, e.g. the fun insect houses and their commitment to supporting Nepal's devastating earthquake. We enjoyed walking through the extravagant swathes of 5 foot high grasses in different colours and textures. The stunning planting and range of sculptures - wooden, glass and metal gave additional interest. And what a lovely setting for the felt, art and textile courses and plays that are held here in the summer months.

Driving past I'd always thought it was just a Tea Garden but oh no it's a fabulous garden, with attached tea room, and rare breeds pigs, and art, and woodturning and pray flags and shines and a bunch a fine friendly people. A great place to unwind.
Well worth a visit, and did I mention the StickyToffee Cake:)

Fifteen of us arrived for a pre-booked event and were greeted by Pauline who made a presentation of how they become interested, professional and eventually returned to England to start their unique venture nearly ten years ago. After that we were free to wander around the garden. Packed lunches had been organised and around noon taken with drinks from the tea shop. Altogether a good way to spend the morning.

Went with a group of like minded garden lovers to a garden we hadn't heard of. It was a delight. So unusual and lovely to be able to wander the bark pathways between the flower beds. We enjoyed the company of Vigo the dog too. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable. The cafe was good value and there was plenty of seating.
Highly recommended.

A wonderful garden experience. To walk amongst the huge colourful boarders was a truly beautiful and relaxing way to spend a sunny summers afternoon. Although not I am not an experienced gardener the love and care which has been lavished on this project is clear to all. The plant shop was brilliant and the staff were on hand to advise and offer suggestions. The tea shop was a further treat. Nestled amongst wonderful plants offering shade and a feeling of total tranquillity we enjoyed a pot of tea and a wonderful array of home baked cakes. A definite place to visit again and again.
