I'm in East Sussex. I enjoy the times where several gardens in one village open together so that you can enjoy (and compare) them in one visit. Winchelsea does this for one weekend of the year which I really do recommend (lovely town and good pub for lunch which is a bonus). In the past gardens in Mayfield and Brighton have also done it. In fact, why not combine garden visiting with the Open Art Houses in Brighton, where you get to nosey round houses/studios which are turned into art galleries for the duration of the festival (May) as well as their gardens? Some of them a truly beautiful - mostly very small but really imaginitively planted.
