A ¼ acre plantaholic’s garden, full of containers, vintage finds and quirky elements. Paths intersect both sun and shady borders bursting with colourful planting and salvias in abundance! A beach hut summerhouse and deck are flanked by a water feature in a pebble circle. Two additional small ponds encourage wildlife. A surprise at every turn. The end of the garden is dedicated to a plant nursery. In 2023 Foxglove Cottage was featured on Gardeners' World, episode 3, and in the July issue of All About Horsham (AAH).
Garden levels change and gravel paths make it unsuitable for wheelchairs.

Foxglove Cottage 29 Orchard Road Horsham West Sussex RH13 5NF Is open for the National Garden Scheme on Sun 26 May, Wed 3 and Sun 7 July (1pm – 5pm). Admission £5, children free. Book online at https://ngs.org.uk or pay on the day. Home-made teas. Vegan, gluten & dairy free cake.

Why support the National Garden Scheme
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK's best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated more than £70 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2023 made donations of over £3.4 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
