TULIP FESTIVAL One of the highlights of the early season at Pashley Manor Gardens is the Tulip Festival. Visitors return year after year, mesmerised by the sheer volume of colour and variety of the massed tulips.

BLUEBELL WALK End of April - Mid May
We open part of our woodland area which, in the flowering season, is covered in a soft blue mantle of thousands of bluebells. Visitors are welcome to walk through this fairy tale area.


SPECIAL ROSE WEEKEND The gardens are spectacular through spring, summer and autumn but it is in June that the fragrant, colour themed plantings of roses are at their best. A representative from Peter Beales Roses, winners of 16 Chelsea Gold Medals, will be leading walks around the gardens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday giving advice on the growing and care of roses

KITCHEN GARDEN WEEKEND  For this weekend in July there will be practical advice from experts; a focus on how the produce from the garden is used and an emphasis on local produce - including the local honey and homemade chutney sold in the gift shop.

LILY TIME  Mid July to mid August (open on normal days only)
Hundreds of lilies in over 40 fascinating varieties, some highly perfumed, planted throughout the gardens and in the woodland area to make a stunning high summer display.

THE SUSSEX GUILD CRAFT SHOW at the end of August - a wonderful opportunity to purchase a variety of quality contemporary crafts from The Sussex Guild’s Craft Show at Pashley Manor Gardens

FLOWER and BOTANICAL EXHIBITION - throughout the season
An exhibition of flower and botanical drawings and paintings with leading artists many of whom have been awarded Gold and Silver Gilt medals by the RHS. All these works are for sale and are hung in the Hall and in the Garden Room Café.

SCULPTURE at PASHLEY - throughout the season
Visitors are often captivated by the wide variety of sculpture at Pashley. Many sculptors return each year to exhibit their work in this idyllic setting.
Among those who have exhibited are:
Bob Allen, John Brown, Peter Clarke, Mary Cox, Kate Denton, Ann Hogben, Philip Jackson, Silvia MacRae Brown, Ev Meynell, James Millborrow, Jane Munro, Dick Onians, Guy Portelli, Helen Sinclair and Jenny Wynne-Jones .

Pashley Manor Gardens

Pashley Manor

The Gardens offer a sumptuous blend of romantic landscaping, imaginative plantings and fine old trees, fountains, springs and large ponds. This is a quintessentially English Garden of a very individual character with exceptional views to the surrounding valleyed fields. Many eras of English history are reflected here, typifying the tradition of the English Country House and its garden. Mr and Mrs James Sellick, who opened the gardens to the public in 1992, have brought them to their present splendour, with the assistance of the eminent landscape architect, Anthony du Gard Pasley. An exciting programme of events has been devised for the discerning garden-lover: the Tulip Festival (a unique fixture in the Garden calendar); the Spring and Summer Plant Fairs; the Sussex Guild Craft Show and an Exhibition of Sculptures and Botanical Paintings and Drawings lasting throughout the season.
