GARDENS TO VISIT
Follers Manor, Seaford Road, Alfriston, East Sussex BN26 5TT
This garden was landscaped in 2009 and shown on many television programmes. One of the key design features is the sunken garden which provides enclosure and intimacy within the setting and simultaneously allows one to admire the breath taking views of the South Downs while avoiding any wind. The herbaceous displays on the south slopes along with the pond and its deck walk encourage wildlife. The finishing touches are the brush strokes of hawthorn hedging throughout the garden which both hide and reveal the gardens components. Later additions include the meadows, inner courtyard, spring garden, woodland walk and drive.
National Garden Scheme 2-3 times a year or for groups of 20-60
