Specialist Herb Growers - Pepperpot Nursery
Primarily a wholesale nursery, we also sell at various retail events, online and opened the nursery to the public for the first time this Summer - something we will arrange again for 2017.
All dates and events are listed at the bottom of this page but please note, we will not be listing any more for this year and generally only sell at events between March and September each year.
We have just moved the nursery from the Surrey Hills to Hampshire and are now based on the outskirts of Chawton in the South Downs National Park. We only grow on a seasonal basis, without the use of artificial heat or light, so our range changes throughout the year and is the reason why some herbs show as being 'out of stock'.
|The nursery is named after the landmark Pepperpot building in the centre of Godalming; the town where we lived when we first started growing our herbs.|
• Specialist herb nursery
• Garden herb plants
• Delivered to the UK Mainland in 9cm pots - see ORDERS tab
|Established in 1998, we have expanded from initially supplying garden centre customers throughout the South East to also selling direct at local Farmers Markets and Garden Shows.|
However, after numerous requests from customers wanting to buy directly from us, but unable to get to a retail event that we're attending, or for those who want to buy during the times when we dont attend any markets or shows, we are now able to offer a mail order service to customers throughout the UK Mainland.
All of the Herbs in our online catalogue are currently supplied in 9cm pots.

We have been incredibly busy over the last year whilst moving our nursery to the new site but we are finally there and trading fully from Hampshire. There was a huge amount of work involved in changing it from a field previously used for grazing, we had to installl water and electric, an access road, put up the polytunnels and other structures and then finally move the herbs!
So far this year we have continued to supply lots of garden centres, nurseries, landscapers, florists, restaurants, gardens and other outlets whilst also selling at events at the weekends. We will be at the RHS Wisley Flower Show for the first time in September (having previously done just the Spring one) and have added a few other new ones to our calendar.
Click on the photo, above right, to get ideas and inspiration from the wonderful planting in the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, Gold Medal winning, 5 a Day Garden by Burgon and Ball where we supplied edible flowers, salad leaves, herbs and chamomile plants.

Apologies, we have finished selling at events for this year and will list dates for 2017 as they are booked.
