Nursery & Gardens:  Closed for Winter

“We have now closed the Nursery and Gardens for the winter.  What a year it has been, and we thank you most sincerely for your sterling support.  We will update you on 2022 opening dates in the next few weeks”  Graham Gough

“Visitors to this small nursery will come away, not only with a boot full of grasses but, as Gough practises what he preaches in his magnificent borders, buckets of information on how to plant them.”

Marchants Gardens & Nursery

Established by plantsman Graham Gough in 1998, Marchants Hardy Plants is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading small independent Nursery and Gardens.

Nestled just north of the South Downs, the Gardens provide an ever-changing vision of the plants in situ through the seasons. Together with his talented Marchants team, Graham produces on site a splendid range of unusual herbaceous, grasses and woodland plants in their new peat-free compost.

We have now closed the Nursery and Gardens for the winter.  We will update you on 2022 opening dates in the next few weeks.

NB “Alas, still no news for you on a transmission date for the Great British Gardens series on Channel 5.  We feel sure it will be shown whether this autumn or even next spring.  Who knows, so please keep watching our website for details as and when.”
