Today I visit Sussex Prairie Garden near Henfield in West Sussex. I meet up with the owner, Pauline McBride, who takes me around and shows me the incredible garden.
Sussex Prairie garden opened to the public in 2009. They are Britain’s largest “Prairie,” or “Naturalistic,” garden, with eight acres of stunning garden to roam around. Unlike most gardens of a comparable size, they have no castle or stately home! They designed and planted the garden themselves, on Pauline’s family farm in West Sussex. Instead of armies of servants and gardeners, they planted all 35 000 plants with help of amazing friends and family!
