Douglas Miller, as he usually signed himself, was an unusually gifted photographer, who set up a studio in Haywards Heath by 1899.Advertising in the 1899 Kelly's Directory he offered to execute "photos in any size and newest styling" and to undertake "copying and enlarging".He also stated that he was available to photograph "garden parties" and perform "outdoor work generally".Edward, who was then 45, was working as a "photographer".
By 1862 he and his family had removed to 25 North Street, but in 1866 they were living at 26 Friars Walk.
Matilda Goldsmith had been born at Newenden in Kent in May 1848, and Fred Miller at Hailsham in February 1850.
Their marriage certificate records that Matilda's father was William Goldsmith, a farm labourer, and that Fred Miller was a professional photographer, as was his father, Edward Miller.
We designed and planted the garden ourselves, on Pauline’s family farm in West Sussex.
Instead of armies of servants and gardeners, we planted all 35 000 plants with help of amazing friends and family!
Sussex Prairie garden opened to the public in 2009, just one year after planting.
