Come Visit Us!

Final chance to have a nose around

To celebrate our 30th anniversary year as a business, we have been opening our gates to the public for the first time in nearly 20 years! We have had two weekends so far, one in the Spring and one in the Summer. This weekend represents the final installment for this year.

We open 9am – 5pm on both Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th. You will get to see the nursery with plenty of Autumn interest, as well as some really interesting plants we have grown for the 2013 season.

Highlight will include late flowering perennials and a large selection of grasses. Also available to buy will be alpines, herbs, Autumn vegetable plants, tropical plants, succulents and patio plants.

See how a commercial nursery ticks and how we produce hundreds of thousands of plants a year. Come meet the famous Tonto the bonkers nursery dog, who has made several appearances on these pages this year!

Open Weekend Take Two!

Great opportunity to visit our wholesale nursery.

How time flies! We already find ourselves in June and our second installment of open days is upon us. After the roaring success of our April dates, we welcome you to visit the nursery next weekend, June 16th and 17th. April was all about Spring, but this time round you will find a dazzling array of Summer plants in their prime all wanting a new home!

Celebrate with us our 30th anniversary as a business and choose from a huge range of perennials, grasses, alpines, herbs, veg, soft fruit, patio and topiary. Doors open 9am – 5pm on both days. Be there! Alternatively, if you can’t make our open days, why not visit us at The Wealden Times Summer Fair at Hole Park 0n 14th, 15th & 16th June.

Shining a Light on Alpines

The hills are alive with the sound of…….. alpines?

This week, the nursery has taken on a patchwork of colour within our alpine beds. The trigger of longer day-length and warmer temperatures are the catalyst for a dramatic display!

Alpines are found across the globe, including Britain, and can be found growing from the foothills to the peaks of the highest mountains. Their worth in the garden is immense. They can be planted in rockeries, walls, border edges and patio pots, proving their versatility. Scroll over photos for plant names.



Coming Soon! Our Easter Public Open Days

Saturday 7th April 9am – 5pm & Sunday 8th April 9am – 5pm.

2012 represents a very important landmark as a business, with our 30th anniversary year, and to celebrate this we are opening our gates to the public for the first time in over fifteen years!

Make the most of this very limited opportunity to sample nearly 3000 different perennials, alpines, potted bulbs, herbs, vegetable plants, soft fruit, grasses, patio plants and topiary. We are strictly a wholesale nursery and will only be open to the public for these special days (see advert on the right).

Potting mania!

Our potting machine gets fired up for the first time this season.

With the early arrival of Spring, it’s full steam ahead here at How Green, where we are frantically potting up young plug plants. Thousands of herbs, perennials, alpines and patio plants are putting our new potting machine (and wonderful staff!) through their paces!
