You'd be hard pushed to find four acres crammed with more beautiful planting than Merriments in East Sussex. I really like what they are doing there, showcasing plants from their own nursery, and experimenting with colour combinations. The gardens have a traditional feel yet there are some very modern ideas, for example using vegetables as ornamentals, and massed plantings in the 'new perrenial' style. I challenge anyone to visit and not be impressed. I took so many photos on my visit this week, that I've put them together in a little video below - please enjoy!
Some of my favourite shots are also posted below:

If you are in East Sussex and you love gardens, do try to get to Merriments, it really is a wonderful garden.
