|Specialist Herb Growers - Pepperpot Nursery|
Supported by the Fieldfare Local Action Group - enabling growth in East Hampshire, Eastleigh and Winchester areas - who have recently assisted with securing Leader funding for our barn and new potting machine.
All herbs showing as available are ready now and your complete order will be despatched within three working days.
In 2016 we 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 - they're either still growing or not being grown at the minute because of the time of year.
|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. We still live there but now grow the herbs just over the county border in Hampshire.|
• Specialist herb nursery - all grown by us.
• Garden herb plants - all of the herbs are in 9cm pots
• Delivery to the UK Mainland - see ORDERS tab for more info
|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.
|Independent and RHS Garden Shows, Festivals, Farmers' Markets, Nursery and Herb Events.|
We have been incredibly busy since moving the nursery to the new and larger site and continue to take on new wholesale customers each year. There was a huge amount of work involved in setting up a nursery from a field previously used for grazing, from installing water and electric, an access road, putting up the polytunnels and other structures and moving the herbs, but everything feels like it's been there forever!
We continue to supply lots of garden centres, nurseries, landscapers, florists, restaurants, gardens and other outlets whilst also selling at a range of events at the weekends during the main gardening season - all details are listed below.
