Morlands Farm, site of the Prairie Garden, is mentioned in the Domesday Book, then known as "Morlei Farm." For the last 50 years our family has farmed the land. The main business being beef cattle, sheep and hay crops. After 12 years working on a major garden design project in Luxembourg, during which Paul and Pauline were lucky enough to work with Piet Oudolf, the Sussex Prairie Garden was conceived.

The garden features many unusual varieties of herbaceous perennials, Veronicastrums, Thalictrums, Persicarias, Sanguisorbas, Kniphofias and Hemerocallis. Huge drifts of ornamental grasses and Asters extend the season of interest hugely. We have dozens of varieties of Miscanthus, Panicums, Molinias, Sporobolis and Penisetum

This is an informal visit but includes a welcome talk about the history of the gardens. 

There is a cafe on site where you can purchase tea/coffee and cakes but please bring a packed lunch.

Cost between £65.00 per head, dropping to £40.00 per head for 16 people or £26.00 per head for 33 people.

Please RSVP if you are interested so we can gather numbers and take a view on 28 April regarding viability.
