The nursery

Architectural Plants is open to both trade and retail customers. Our team of horticultural experts are on hand to welcome you from Monday - Saturday, 9am - 5pm. 

Our nursery is spread across eight indoor polytunnel 'spans' and eight acres of outdoor displays. We take an enormous amount of pride in our displays and in the quality of our plants. You will find everything clearly laid out and labelled with our traffic light hardiness rating system.

The nursery is flat and accessible for all. Should you require use of a wheelchair, we have two available - please speak to a member of our team who will help you. Dogs are very welcome here as long as they are well behaved and on a lead.

Please note that our nursery moved in 2015 to Stane Street in Pulborough. The Nuthurst nursery is no longer open.


Our team are always around to offer advice, arrange a delivery or help to pack your car with our plants. 

We offer a Garden Design, Planting and Creative Maintenance service. 
Ask one of the team when you arrive and we can explain how it all works. Bring some photos of your garden from as many angles as possible. 

If you are visiting at the end of the week or weekend please email us to book an appointment with one of our designers.

Take a look at our Garden Design Projects

Our range of plants is extensive. We have a huge selection of semi mature trees and shrubs, but we also sell plants small enough to pop in the car and take away with you on the day. We propagate a lot of our rarer specimens (listed here), and source many more from around the UK.

You will also find a great selection of glazed, ironstone and corten steel pots, water features and fire pits. Our sculpture collection is displayed in its very own (and rather posh) garden at the entrance to the nursery.

We suggest having a break mid-way through your visit in the Architectural Cafe & Shop. The cafe offers a range of coffees, lunches, snacks and cakes, and the shop stocks a range of homeware, books, stationery and garden accessories.

To end your visit, take a stroll over the bank and enjoy a little peace and quiet by the lake. 

We're dog friendly. In fact, we have four of our own here, so you're more than welcome to bring Fido with you (please just make sure you clean up after him).

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
