The gardens at Nymans have existed since the late 1800s when Ludwig Messeel brought 600 acres of land overlooking the beautiful High Weald of Sussex. For a long time the garden was a source of great experimentation, with several new hybrids of plants being created within the grounds, including new species of Eucryphia, Magnolia and Forsythia.
In 1915, Ludwig’s son Leonard built a stone manor on the site, but unfortunately the manor did not last long as it suffered a devastating fire in 1947. Today the manor is little more than an empty shell, but fortunately the gardens, now own by the National Trust, are as spectacular as ever.
