Nymans Gardens

Nymans is one of the great gardens of the Sussex Weald and is internationally famous for its beauty and collection of rare plants. It is the achievement of three generations of the Messel family over a period of over a hundred years. Nymans was one of the first gardens to come to the National Trust when it was bequeathed into its care in 1953.

The garden was purchased in 1890 by Ludwig Messel and consists of the 600 acre Nymans estate and the Regency house. The creation of the garden got underway in earnest in September 1895 when the 29-year old James Comber was appointed Head Gardener. His horticultural expertise and Messel's willingness to experiment with new plants were to prove the perfect combination
