To Linger in a Garden Fair - Ongoing event
Green Tree Gallery, Borde Hill, Haywards Heath
The words may have been penned by the 14th century Persian poet Hafiz, but they perfectly describe the delicious anticipation of enjoying the garden after a long winter. This is an exhibition devoted to one of Britain’s most popular pastimes, featuring work in a variety of media. Open Tues to Sat.
Spring Garden & Leisure Show - Sunday 30 April and Monday 1 May
South of England Showground, Ardingly
Open daily 9am-5pm. Visitors can enjoy lots of new outdoor pursuits and interactive entertainment, pick up on some top gardening tips, get creative and indulge in some fantastic retail therapy. New this year is the UK’s first interactive mobile caving system, the only one of its kind in the country and probably the most realistic artificial caving experiences you will get above ground with more than 90ft of tunnelling inside including two levels, sumps, stalagmites and squeezes.
Open Garden - Sunday 30 April
Highdown Gardens, Worthing
Famous garden created by Sir Frederick Stern situated on downland countryside in a chalk pit. The garden contains a wide collection of plants; many were raised from seed brought from China by great collectors like Wilson, Farrer and Kingdon-Ward.
