“In the late 1800’s Ludwig Messel bought the Nymans Estate in the Sussex High Weald to make a dream family home. Inspired by the wooded surroundings he created a garden with plants collected from around the world. Here this creative family entertained friends and family, enjoyed relaxing, playing and picnicking in the garden and woods. Today it is still a garden lovers’ home – a place to relax all year round and enjoy a peaceful country garden.” (taken from National Trust visitor information page).
A few weeks ago I was able to visit this garden and explore some of it’s features. Although the weather was wet it didn’t take away any of the beauty seen within the borders. I share but a few of the plants that were on show with you.
