The Garden House,5 Warleigh Road,Brighton,East Sussex,BN1 4NT

Tucked away in the heart of the city, this really is a secret garden, in Victorian times a market garden. Organically grown fruit, vegetables, cut flowers, roses, shrubs and trees give yr-round interest, making this a peaceful oasis in the midst of a bustling city. Most of the plants have been propagated on-site. It is hoped that the garden will inspire experienced and beginner gardeners alike.
