What's looking good in autumn at West Dean Gardens?

"Current warm night temperatures and a very odd apocalyptic-coloured sky have graced autumnal months so far at West Dean. This unseasonal weather has kept the gardeners wondering whatever will be next." Read Gardens Supervisor, Sarah Wain's latest blog, to get the low-down on what to look out for on your next visit to West Dean Gardens.

Photographic exhibition continues in 2017

During your visit to West Dean make sure you stop by the 'mushroom shed' to see the wonderful photo exhibition in the Kitchen Garden of before and after pitcures. 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.
