photoshoots and filming at architectural plants

a unique setting

Located in the heart of the West Sussex countryside is our unique and striking plant nursery. We're renowned for our symmetrical avenues of mature trees, our collection of Japanese topiary and eight enormous internal spans filled with thousands of tropical and rare specimen plants. It's often said that stepping into Architectural Plants is like being in the jungle or a rainforest - it's truly otherworldly.

Our nursery is set within 32 acres of open fields surrounded by farmland and views of the Sussex downs. We have a large lake with gently undulating hills, ideal for hosting outdoor performances and gatherings. The lakeside area is beautiful all year round and makes a perfect location for photoshoots.
