Merriments Gardens


Merriments’ stunning 4-acre RHS Partner Garden is one of the South East's hidden gems. The garden has deep meandering borders, a rich tapestry of colour, texture and scent. 

The garden's imaginative planting designs are inspiration for your own patch. A long season of colour with many unusual plants, most on sale in the on-site nursery.

      Not a welcoming place, I was reprimanded on entry, I would have thought they would be grateful for all the business they can get when they charge £6.50 for a ham sandwich. Read full review
