    Three magnificent Magnolias in flower
    Borde Hill Garden near Haywards Heath is rightly famous for its collection of mature magnolia trees. Most of them are the original plants collected by the Great Plant Hunters and planted over 80 years ago by the garden’s founder Colonel Stephenson R Clarke. While most of the magnolias flower in the spring before the leaves appear, Borde Hill’s collection of many species extends the flowering period into the summer months. Provided there aren’t any heavy frosts, the magnolias should be looking gorgeous until the middle of April.
