Our latest blog by Sarah Wain is here to read. Fritillaries are the flowery beacons of early April in the West Dean orchard and the appearance of all/any bulb is a treat, even blousy pink tulips that are currently frolicking in the Walled Garden are eye-catchers, wear your sunglasses though as they're so bright.

Due to its popularity we are keeping our photographic exhibition open for 2017. Created as part of our 25 years of glorious gardening celebrations in 2016 the exhibiton includes images of the gardens in the early 1990s when our head gardeners Jim Buckland and Sarah Wain first started working at West Dean. It gives a fantastic insight in to the work involved and the transformation is astounding! Entry to the exhibition is all included in the Gardens entry price.
