Event Information

The garden at Down Place is set on the South Downs with panoramic views out to the undulating wooded countryside. The garden merges seamlessly into its surrounding landscape with rose and herbaceous borders that have been moulded into the sloping ground. There is a well-stocked vegetable garden and walks shaded by beech trees, which surround the natural wildflower meadow where various native orchids flourish.

The wildflower meadow is covered in natural wild daffodils in April, cowslips in May, and six varieties of wild orchids, plus various other wild flowers from the end of May through to early July. Seeds from the meadow are used to regenerate devastated areas in the South Downs National Park.

The substantial top terrace and borders is accessible to wheelchairs.

Down Place South Harting Petersfield, West Sussex GU31 5PN opens for the National Garden Scheme on Saturday 23rd March and Sunday 24th March. It also opens on Sunday 16th June and Monday 17th June (1.30pm-5.30pm).
