Specialist Herb Growers - Pepperpot Nursery
Our online ordering system is now closed until February 2020 when it will again be possible to order herbs to be delivered via courier. We would like to thank everyone who has bought our herbs in this way throughout 2019 and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Neil and Catherine
Established in 1998, we're now into our 22nd year of growing herbs; primarily a wholesale nursery, we also sell at various retail events and online. Other than that the nursery is open seasonally Monday to Friday from 9am until 4pm - so do check with us as the tunnels are still full of lovely herbs.
Pepperpot Nursery, Selborne Road, Alton, Hampshire GU34 3HL
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 - we are finished for this year but will update those for 2020 as we book them.
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.
• 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.
|Independent and RHS Garden Shows, Festivals, Farmers' Markets, Nursery and Herb Events.|
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.
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.
|Farmers' Markets, Garden Shows and Events: Where to find us!|
Apologies if, with no more events to be attended in 2019, you've missed us. It is still possible to collect orders and pay for them at the nursery, just contact us after selecting from the online availability and we'll have it ready for you.
Many thanks to everyone who has supported us by buying our herbs from the events we've attended - it's greatly appreciated and we hope to see you again in 2020!
