Merriments Garden was started over ten years ago and can now be said to have reached maturity. The garden extends to four acres of dense planting and was started as a display garden for the nursery (run by the Buchele family), which can now claim to be one of the finest in Europe.

The Blue Hut Spring 2004The garden is a masterpiece of colour composition, the deeply planted curved borders are colour themed and include many rare plants. They combine together to form creative pictures that are inspirational and change with the seasons. From spring to Autumn the careful mix of trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses provide interest and imaginative colour combinations.

Wild Bird feederCombine this with the ability to purchase these often unique plants at the nursery on completing your tour and you are in a gardeners heaven. I am no plantsman, but I was surprised at the range of unusual specimens available.

To add interest, there is a wild area in the garden which includes a bird watching hide, with multiple bird feeders that attract a large variety of wild birds, also Weasels have been seen playing.

As well as the nursery there is a garden shop with a wide selection of unusual gifts and a contemporary garden cafe. The whole experience is a must for gardening enthusiasts. Merriments is situated on the A229 off the A21 at Hurst Green in East Sussex.
