Hollygate Cactus Garden, Ashington, Sussex
Hollygate Cactus Garden, Ashington, Sussex
The Garden is attractively landscaped in over 10,000 sq. ft of glasshouses enabling visitors to wander at leisure amongst the many plants. Developed by Clive Innes in the 1960s then extended by the late Terry Hewitt (who sadly passed away in 2006 aged just 63), this world famous exhibition is best seen in May and June when the plants are smothered in flowers. (At present the site is open by appointment only.) LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

Final note: It's all gone, thousands of unusual plants dead - what a waste.
