    East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens
    A remarkable 18 acre exotic garden which is a feast of formal design, decorative exuberance and brilliant planting.

    It is scarcely twelve years old and continually enhanced with new projects. Although it is quite close to the sea, it is well protected from the full blast of the wind by demi-windbreaks, making it possible to grow remarkably tender plants. Clustering about the Arts & Crafts vicarage, walled and hedged compartments vary strongly in mood - from cool formality to explosions of colour and form. Much of this is inward-looking, but occasionally exhilarating vistas borrow distant church towers or the lighthouse as eye-catchers. Sculptures, lavishly planted pots and finely detailed walls and gates also play their decorative part.

    Designed by Alan Gray and Graham Robeson, the owners, from a site which originally comprised tussocky grass up to 4ft tall. In 1988 there were no trees surrounding the garden so most of the shelter belts were planted the following year. They are an important and fundamental feature allowing gardening in this exotic style. The process of development continues.
