The National Garden Scheme: Meadow Farm, Pulborough 

https://findagarden.ngs.org.uk/garden/34935/meadow-farm

This wonderful 2-acre garden (approx.) garden has been designed and planted by the current owners, from scratch, over the last 16 years. There is a formal pond, a green and white shady garden and colour themed beds including double borders. A pleached hornbeam avenue stretches out towards the Sussex countryside. A walled garden provides fruit, cut flowers and vegetables. There is also an orchard with a hazelnut walk, a new wildlife swimming pond, a bog garden and gravel garden.

Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair access due to gravel drive, paths and uneven ground.

Meadow Farm Blackgate Lane Pulborough West Sussex RH20 1DF is open for the National Garden Scheme on Sat 18 May (2.30 – 5.30). Admission £5, children free. Home-made teas. Pre-book online at www.ngs.org.uk or pay on the day.

This garden opens for By Arrangement visits from May to 4 October for groups of between 5 and 25.

National Garden Scheme
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK’s best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated more than £70 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2023 made donations of over £3.4 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.

The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
