Casters Brook, Midhurst– In the morning we visit Jean and Philip Jackson’s large, informal garden with huge pond (and one duck) and see some of the internationally renowned artist Philip Jackson’ssculptures in a garden setting. In the afternoon, after a stop for lunch, we will visit Dean House, Kilmeston.This garden was described to me as ‘the jewel in the NGS crown’ by the NGS organiser for our county. The 7 acres have also been described as ‘a well-kept secret hidden behind the elegant façade of its Georgian centrepiece’. Sweeping lawns, York stone paths, gravel pathways, many mature trees and herbaceous borders. Rose garden, pond garden, working walled garden with glasshouses, 60 metre laburnum and wisteria tunnel.
