A hidden gem in the High Weald of Sussex, sensitively planted to enhance the natural landscape. A botanical treasure trove and classic English idyll make High Beeches one of the finest gardens in the South East

Bluebell Time

Blue Camassias, Prunus serrula and bluebells

Prunus serrula is mainly grown for its beautiful polished red-brown bark.  It was introduced to this
country by E.H Wilson from Western China in 1908.  Camassias (  Quamash or Wild Hyacinths)
 are perennials native to the Western United States.

Rhododendron campylocarpum and bluebells
The glades at High Beeches are thickly carpeted with  bluebells contrasting beautifully with yellow Rhododenrons and primroses.

The garden is open from 11 am on Bank Holiday Monday.
