We’ve picked these two National Garden Scheme locations in Sussex for their beautiful spring displays, distinctive garden characteristics and on-site nursery and plant sales.

At Great Dixter, we’ll have access to the House, Gardens and Nursery and can benefit from the inspirational talents of Lutyens and Christopher Lloyd, whose work is beautifully represented there.  Read more here: https://ngs.org.uk/view-garden/511
