A second stop in my East Sussex odyssey, having been to Pashley Manor Gardens and now calling in at this very peaceful nurseries and gardens, King John’s. A quirky nursery and plant centre, with a delightful cafe and a beautiful garden surrounding the adjacent house. A wild orchard garden, large lawns, canal, woodland garden, statuary and quirky features abound. Such a tranquil spot, and the wild garden was an absolute delight, the long grass studded with primroses and fritillary, with blossom aplenty from the fruit and cherry trees.

In the nursery, I bought a Geranium maderense, white form, which I am very much looking forward to growing on this summer. Have always wanted one… Next stop, Merriments –
