St Leonards Gardens is an English Heritage listed Grade 2 site, situated in James Burton's Regency St Leonards.

Palmstead Nurseries was part of the team involved in the refurbishment of St Leonards Gardens, after a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £1 million.

The gardens, originally a subscription garden surrounded by Regency villas, a hotel and a masonic hall, are set in a natural valley, rising up at its northern extent, offering picturesque views. It is less than 100 metres from the sea.

The Gardens are the centrepiece of James Burton's new town, which was founded in 1828. James Burton made substantial contributions to British architecture, as did his son Decimus, who also worked at St Leonards and designed a number of London parks.

Palmstead supplied plants that were in cultivation at Regency times. In many cases, the new plants of that time were from the Americas, some of which are no longer widely cultivated.

Palmstead successfully supplied 17,500 plants across 275 species and varieties. Delivering plants as the works progressed, on a bed-by-bed basis, assisted the progress of English Landscapes undertaking the landscape works.

The planting has established well and the Gardens are enjoying a welcome resurgence in popularity and use.
