Sussex Prairie Garden

Sussex Prairies Garden

Sussex Prairie Garden of approx 6 acres planted in a naturalistic style using 30,000 plants of 600 different varieties.

Sussex Prairie Garden features a huge variety of ornamental grasses. Expect layers of colour, texture and architectural splendour. It is surrounded by mature oak trees with views of Chanctonbury Ring and the South Downs.

  • You can walk amongst the borders and get close to the plants which are designed in semi circles.
  • There are 2 naturalistic pools with bullreeds on one side and as you can imagine they  are a magnet to all types of wildlife including bees, butterflies, hedgehogs, and toads. 
  • The plants and their seeds are left for the birds until the end of February when the borders are set on fire and the process begins again.
  • There is also an interesting collection of sculptures.
  • Featured on BBC Gardeners World and widely published in the horticultural press. Sussex Prairies Garden is home to an Annual Unusual Plant and Art fair in September.

If you like 'naturalistic planting' this garden is for you.
