Please note that we are still closed to the general public. However, we are offering private viewings for design, trade or retail customers looking at making larger orders. All other orders need to be done via phone or email and we can organise delivery or collection at our gate. Our Garden Design, Planting and Creative Maintenance services are all fully operational. We have a skeleton crew at the moment and we are answering all enquiries 7 days a week. Please email us with your requirements or call Guy or Sophie on 01798 879213.
Keep an eye on our social media for our series of educational videos and pictures from the nursery. We would like to thank all of our customers and suppliers for their ongoing support.
Many thanks and best wishes,
Guy, Angus, Sophie and Debbie.
Architectural Plants is a nursery in Pulborough, West Sussex, set within 32 acres of open fields and surrounded by farmland overlooking the South Downs. We welcome both the general public and trade customers.
The nursery was established in 1990 by Angus White, and Guy Watts joined as Managing Director in 2016 (see 'The Story So Far...' for more info). We 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. Many of our plants are homegrown and we also source a lot from elsewhere in the UK. There's a powerful discipline behind what we grow and why we grow it. We are the home of the interesting, unusual, quirky and bizarre - the tropical and the jungly of both big and small specimen plants.
If you share our enthusiasm for the sculptural qualities of plants and want to transform your garden, we make the process absurdly simple. If we design your garden, we only use our plants. Whatever we do in your garden, it will look quite a lot like the nursery and if you're one of those people who really like the nursery, this is a heavenly solution. We also provide planting and maintenance services.
In 1990, Angus put a little box ad in The Garden magazine and coined a tag line - "We're terribly helpful and awfully enthusiastic". We still are!
