How Green Winter Lectures – join us for a horticultural special treat!

****** SOLD OUT ****** For our first How Green Winter Lecture of the season, we are delighted to announce we will be screening the highly acclaimed film by Thomas Piper – Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf on 27th November 2019 at Hever Golf Club. Tickets on sale for £8.50. Spaces are limited. An immersive and meditative documentary that reveals how the world famous, revolutionary landscape designer, Piet Oudolf, up-ends our conventional notions of nature, public space and ultimately, beauty itself. Examples of his work include The High Line in New York and Hauser & Wirth in Somerset. The Times – With his floppy silver hair and gentle zeal, Oudolf is like a botanical David Attenborough. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian – This intriguing doc details the maverick landscape gardener’s visions in all their florid glory.

Last How Green Public Open weekend for 2019

Roll up, roll up folks! Take this opportunity to visit a strictly trade only nursery and growers to the Chelsea Flower Show. We are welcoming all on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September – including little ones and well behaved doggies. Join us to purchase some of our beautiful plants and eat homemade cake and drink tea in our gorgeous nursery garden. We only open three times a year and this is your final chance to come and visit us in 2019! September is a great time to plant, not only for late season colour for this year but for enhancing the garden for next year. The ground will be warm, encouraging plants to develop healthy root systems before the onset of Winter. Feel free to bring some clear skies and sunshine too please!

Ready for our Public Open Weekend Summer edition

We are open to the public again this weekend – come along, bring a friend and hopefully the sun will shine for us all!  We have a large selection of bedding plants, perennials, shrubs and herbs all being sold at prices much cheaper than garden centres so come and take advantage while you can.  PS – Did we mention that we are also selling delicious, homemade cake!

A polite reminder that we are strictly TRADE ONLY except on our six open days each year

Sorry to disappoint, but unfortunately we have had to turn away some visitors who wished to look around and purchase plants. We are a Trade Only Nursery and as such our priorities have to be our regular customers. We have Open Days (see side panel for information) where the public can come in and purchase our plants and all are welcome on these days.  We would love to open our doors to everyone but this is not possible, so please do not take it personally. We hope you understand.

Public Open Weekends 2020:
18 & 19 April
6 & 7 June
5 & 6 September

We are a wholesale nursery, growing and supplying plants to the horticultural professions. However, we also hold a series of open weekends, just three times a year, where we are open to the general public. These events are usually in April, June and September. 

On these open days all are welcome to view and purchase plants and enjoy tea and cake in the garden.

In addition, we also host regular talks and group visits. Please check our Public News page  or subscribe to our Public Events Newsletter.
