The National Garden Scheme: Pop Up Open Garden: Sedgwick Park House 

https://findagarden.ngs.org.uk/garden/19808/sedgwick-park-house

Sedgwick Park House is holding two ‘Pop Up’ openings before their sale at the end of the year. This means that the garden is not listed in the NGS Sussex County Booklet but is now on the website.

The beautiful parkland, meadows and woodland are a must to see. Formal gardens by Harold Peto featuring 20 interlinking ponds, impressive water garden known as The White Sea. Large Horsham stone terraces and lawns look out onto clipped yew hedging and specimen trees. One of the finest views of the South Downs, Chanctonbury Ring and Lancing Chapel. Turf labyrinth and organic vegetable garden. Cash only on the day. The garden has been featured in The English Garden (2015) and Period Living (2019) magazines and the Hampton Court Silver Gilt 2012 garden was recreated in an area of the garden.

Sedgwick Park House, Horsham, Sussex (RH13 6QQ) is open for the National Garden Scheme on Thursday 9th May and Sunday 19th May (12pm – 5pm). Admission £6, children free. Pre-book on the NGS website https://ngs.org.uk or pay on the day (cash only). Tea, coffee and biscuits (in aid of Blooodwise Cancer, cash only).

Why support the 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.

To learn more about the National Garden Scheme, discover your perfect garden or find out how to open your own garden, visit ngs.org.uk, download the National Garden Scheme app or purchase the National Garden Scheme’s Garden Visitor’s Handbook, which is published annually and available via ngs.org.uk/shop and at all good book retailers.
