Nymans is a beautiful English garden to the east of the village of Handcross in West Sussex. The garden was developed, starting in the late 19th century, by three generations of the Messel family, and was brought to renown by Leonard Messel.
In 1953 Nymans became a National Trust property. Nymans is the origin of many sports, selections and hybrids, both planned and serendipitous, some of which can be identified by the term nymansensis. So many plants and flowers that have been developed in this West Sussex garden are all very familiar to gardeners up and down the country and even around the globe.
Visitors from around the world flock to visit this gemstome of a garden set in the picturesque county of West Sussex. During 2019, the gardens received 382,948 visitors.
In the late 19th century, Ludwig Ernest Wilhelm Leonard Messel, a member of a German Jewish family, settled in England and bought the Nymans estate, a house with 600 acres on a sloping site overlooking the gorgeous High Weald of West Sussex. There he set about turning the estate into a place for family life and entertainment, with an Arts and Crafts-inspired garden room where topiary features contrast with new plants from temperate zones around the world.
The grounds head gardener from 1895 was James Comber, whose expertise helped form plant collections at Nymans of camellias, rhododendrons, which unusually at the time were combined with planting heather eucryphias and magnolias. William Robinson advised in establishing the Wild Garden.
Ludwigs son Colonel Leonard Messel succeeded to the property in 1915 and replaced the nondescript Regency house with the picturesque stone manor, designed in a mellow late Gothic and Tudor style. He and his wife Maud extended the garden to the north and subscribed to seed collecting expeditions in the Himalayas and South America.
The West Sussex garden reached a peak in the 1930s and was regularly opened to the public. The severe reduction of staff in World War II was followed in 1947 by a disastrous fire in the house, which survives as a garden ruin. The house was partially rebuilt and became the home of Leonard Messels daughter Anne Messel and her second husband the 6th Earl of Rosse. At Leonard Messels death in 1953 it was bequeathed to the National Trust with 275 acres of woodland, one of the first gardens taken on by the Trust. Lady Rosse continued to serve as Garden Director.
The garden suffered much damage in the Great Storm of October 1987, losing 486 mature trees and many of the shrubs. The pinetum, one of the gardens earliest features, was also destroyed. The garden remains a very popular destination for visitors to this part of West Sussex.
