  1. Unlike many companies selling over the internet we welcome visitors to our Nursery and Plant Centre; if you are ever in the South East of England why not come and find us?
    At our nursery we stock a far wider range of plants than we offer by mail order as we grow many subjects (both ornamental and edible) in too smaller quantity to list online. And of course you will find helpful friendly advice from people who have a genuine interest in what they grow and sell.You will not however find large displays of ornaments, pots, peat and the like - we are a true production nursery - not a soul-less garden centre! As you walk around the outside beds and the large growing and display house you will see our staff sowing seeds, taking cuttings, potting up and caring for the plants. We produce and grow the old fashioned way with care and dedication. You will see our display vegetable garden, the herb garden, the newly planted soft fruit garden and our new flower and cutting gardend. In the main display and growing house you will see over 500 fuchsias - to see them at their glory do visit from mid May onwards although we are sure that you will find something interesting whatever time of year you visit.
    We are situated on the top of the North Downs adjacent to 'King's Wood', 'Well Wood' and 'Ashes Wood' - ancient woodlands that in late April and early May are carpeted by bluebells. The Nursery itself is screened by a belt of trees and shrubs helping it to be a haven for wildlife. In Spring our gateway is a riot of colour with daffodils and tulips and during the Summer and Autumn you will be greeted by fuchsias in full flower. As you make your way around the nursery you may well see many of the birds that live permanently on the nursery or some that visit during the Summer months; We have many varieties of Finches, Tits including the Long Tailed Tit as well as Blackbirds, Thrushes, Sparrows, Jays, Starlings and both the Green and Spotted Woodpecker. We also have visits by Pheasants and Partridge from the nearby Eastwell Estate (especially during the shooting season when they become our resident refugees!). During warm sunny days you might see Green Lizards, Newts and Sloe Worms basking in the sun. Also during the Summer months we have many butterflies and moths as well as Dragon Flies darting about across the pond and aquatic tanks.

      They seem to be doing a 20% discount on grapevines, last visited back in the summer and the place was stacked out with them.
      10% discount on other stuff at the moment.
      Offer ends 29 October.
