The Sussex Garden Buildings Centre displays one of the largest selections of garden buildings in the region.
Alongside the garden centre, you will find some of the finest gardens in Sussex, with several small lakes, waterfalls, fountains and plant houses.
In 1982, horticulturist Jonathan Tate joined the family business and started about establishing a plant nursery in mid Sussex. He wanted to propagate unusual plants for sale to members of the public.
Jonathan was inspired by the new concept of the garden centre emerging in the UK.
He saw a place where people could visit and purchase everything they needed for their garden from one place.
He decided he would develop what is now Tates of Sussex Garden Centres.
