Covid-19 UPDATE: 

PLEASE NOTE: the Nursery & Gardens are currently CLOSED for the winter.  We hope to reopen in March 2021 (exact date TBC).

“Thank you for the invaluable support you have given us over the past months. We look forward to opening as usual in mid–March. A bountiful new crop of plants is being made for you as I write.  In the meantime, a window of opportunity beckons – find out about our early February Specialist Snowdrop Sale!”  

Graham Gough

“In the beds and borders of the gardens that are part of Marchants a style of gardening is evolving that fuses the best elements of the "New Perennial" movement with a very English love of colour.”

Marchants Gardens & Nursery

PLEASE NOTE: We hope to reopen Marchants Nursery & Gardens in March 2021 (exact date TBC).  Meanwhile we will be ‘open’ for our annual and very popular Snowdrop Sale during February only.  This will be under strict Collect or Mail Order guidelines detailed here – Specialist Snowdrop Sale

SPRING 2021: Carol Klein will present Channel 5’s series of eight ‘Great British Gardens’ and we are lucky to be one of them. Each programme, an hour long, reveals the garden through the four seasons.  We look forward sharing the viewing date with you as soon as we hear. 

Widely viewed as a key destination for keen gardeners, Marchants Hardy Plants is a small specialist Nursery nestled just north of the South Downs and renowned for growing all its herbaceous plants/grasses on site.

After a turbulent but thankfully successful 2020, Graham reflects: “Our gardens have become important bastions of security and much more during the pandemic. The garden interpreted as ‘Paradise’ has fulfilled our ideas of tranquillity, safety, isolation and fuelled too our important creative desires. Take care, stay safe, stay well  – we look forward to seeing you as-and-when we are allowed to open our gates.”
