Architectural Plants nursery is near Pulborough in West Sussex and specialise in plants that are both shapely and exotic - Japanese and European Topiary, hardy palms, bananas, bamboos, plants for screening, and a range of rare evergreen trees. They are the home of the interesting, unusual, quirky and bizarre - the tropical and the jungly, of both big and small specimen plants. Winners of a number of awards for their innovative approach and high level of presentation. The Antidote to Garden Centres.
The nursery was in Nuthurst near Horsham for 25 years and moved to their present site in February 2015.
We use an unconventional approach to Garden Design that our customers find sympathetic, understandable and affordable.
We rarely use drawings (avoiding the associated expense and abbreviating the entire process) and we design on site. Having our own nursery and using our own plants, we can position the plants in your garden to give a remarkably accurate idea of how it'll look. You, the customer, join in the process as much or as little as you like.
We grow a unique collection of plants that all conform to a single principal: they always have a strong emphasis on shape.
Our tried and tested range of plants has remained much the same since we started 25 years ago and we do our best to pass on to our customers, the enormous amount of information and experience we've accrued during that time. Informative? Always! Enthusiastic? Always! Bossy? A bit, but nicely so!
We're always keen to add to our hundreds of trade customers - a discerning lot they are too. Many of our plants are unavailable elsewhere.
Because we propagate much of our own stock vegetatively, many of our plant-loving garden designers take great pleasure in the fact that they enjoy the unusual continuity of buying in 2015 exactly the same plant as they bought in 1995. Advice on use and husbandry of our rarer plants is always given willingly. Please ask.
