Royal Sussex Garden Trug

Royal Sussex Garden Trug


Smaller than the South Down Rother Trug, the Royal sussex is unique, with bark still on the strips of wood moulded to create this exquisite gardeners friend. 

Way back in the heydays of the 1820’s, just before Queen Victoria ascended to the English Throne, a Man of Sussex, one Thomas Smith of Herstmonceux, made a decision about his life that was to have a profound effect on Sussex and the World.   He invented the Sussex Trug!   Taking an ancient idea dating back to Anglo Saxon times, Thomas redesigned the historic “trog” and in so doing he created a part of the English gardening scene that is now World famous!
