The historic village of Lindfield is surrounded by beautiful countryside& ringed with magnificent gardens such as Wakehurst Place (which now houses the Kew seed bank), Nymans, Sheffield Park, & Borde Hill to name but a few. These are an inspiration & resource for our own more modest patches. Most of the local soil is over Wealden clay which is neutral to acid - enough to sustain rhododendrons & other acid lovers, but there are deep pockets of loamy soil (honestly!) which means an extremely wide variety of plants can be grown. Our weather is predominantly influenced by the prevailing south-westerly winds, generally mild and recently - very dry!
(Ed. writes - We'd like to know if there are any budding metereologists out there with all the local stats.)
