• We are only able to accept card payments. No cash or gift cards please.
• We will not be allowing family groups to enter, only one parent with children and no dogs except for service dogs will be permitted to enter.
• Under government guidelines, we unfortunately will not be able to offer assistance to customers in our usual way so please be aware that we may not be able to load your car with heavy items during this period of social distancing.

Please respect staff and fellow customers and maintain a safe distance when shopping.
We appreciate that under normal circumstances our Garden Centre is a leisurely place to shop and browse. In this initial stage of opening please do think about your fellow customers and the length of the queue to help us to give everyone an opportunity to shop.

Accessibility

Sussex Country Gardener recognises the need for the website to be accessible to all. We have implemented a number of features to make this website easy to use, especially for users with disabilities.

The following features improve navigation for text only browsers, screen reader users, and users of keyboard navigation.

You can change the font size of each page to your preference through the browser.

Forms

Labels are used to assist access to form fields. All forms follow a logical tab sequence.

Tables

Tables are used to display tabular data. Tables are not used for general site layout. This means our tables are being used in a correct and meaningful manner.

The site has been designed to be easy to read through its colour combinations.

Links

We have worked hard to ensure that our links are meaningful, and some links are explained in greater detail by using a title attribute.

If you do not have one of these browsers installed or are unable to upgrade, you may find the website easier to use by disabling CSS altogether - please see your browsers help documentation for further information.
