Bill and Rosemary Tustin are opening their garden in aid of St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree Hospices this coming Sunday, 14th June 2015 between 2pm and 5pm.

This beautiful, private and rarely seen garden lies in the ancient hamlet of Wepham, near Arundel in the Sussex Downs.

Bill and Rosemary have lived in Wepham for some twenty-eight years. Rosemary comes from a family of horticulturists and in 2008 she embarked upon her life-long ambition to create a garden from scratch.

Pathways lead you through beds of lavender complimented by the piercing blue of cornflowers. The rich planting and hedges are framed against the backdrop of the Sussex Downs.

This generous place reflects its generous owners. The Tustin’s garden at Wepham Granary, Wepham, Burpham, Near Arundel, BN18 9RA, will be open this Sunday 14th June 2015 between 2pm and 5pm. Entrance will cost just £5 per person and will include a cream tea! All proceeds go to St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree Hospices.
