About the garden

Owned by

Set in the heart of a medieval deer park at the foot of the South Downs, Parham’s award-winning four acre Walled Garden is a tapestry of colour and rich scents from early spring until the frosts of autumn. The vast herbaceous borders are currently undergoing restoration. These and the majestic vegetable parterre provide a haven of peace and tranquillity.     

In a tradition established more than 70 years ago, the beautiful flower arrangements throughout the house are supplied from blooms in the garden. A stunning historic greenhouse displays many unusual aromatic and tender plants. The garden is surrounded by the seven-acre Pleasure Grounds, which include a lake set among specimen trees and native heathers and a delightful (and complicated) turf and brick maze.     

Parham’s Nursery offers a wide range of carefully selected and interesting plants for sale.
