Specialist Herb Growers - Pepperpot Nursery
All herbs showing as available to order are ready now and will be despatched as a complete order within three working days.
Now into our 22nd year of growing herbs, we're primarily a wholesale nursery but also sell at various retail events and online. Other than that the nursery is only open seasonally, Mon - Fri from 9am until 4pm - so do pop in if you're passing, we have one of the polytunnels set aside for retail sales and would love to see you.
We tend to be out selling at the weekends and dates of the events we'll be attending are listed at the bottom of this page.
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.|
• 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
|Online Sales: Since setting up in 1998 we have expanded from supplying garden centre customers throughout the South East to also selling direct at local Farmers Markets, Garden Shows and other local events.|
However, after numerous requests from customers wanting to buy 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. Alternatively, the nursery is open from 9-4, Mon-Fri throughout Spring and early Summer.
All of the Herbs in our online catalogue are currently supplied in 9cm pots.

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.
