These stunningly beautiful chalk gardens on Downland countryside, overlooking the sea, are a tranquil haven for all to enjoy. The gardens are home to The National Plant Collection of the Plant Introductions of Sir Fredrick Stern - a unique collection of plants and trees, with many unusual plants to be discovered all year round.

The Gardens looks their best in spring and early summer when there is a colourful succession of spring bulbs such as Crocus, Daffodils, Anemones and Snowdrops followed by Paeonies and Bearded Iris.

Scillas and Hellebores, sometimes known as the Christmas or Lenten rose, are amongst the many delights on show in the beds throughout the Gardens. Scilla Peruviana has such a beautiful flower. It can be forgiven for having such untidy leaves.

Two of our most popular trees with our visitors in late spring are the Handkerchief Tree and the Judas Tree.
