The 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.
Combine 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.
