Southon Plants Nursery grows over 95% of it's own plants on the nursery. Situated just outside East Grinstead at the crossroads of Kent, Sussex and Surrey we are ideally placed to serve the South East. An Aladdin's cave of plants with some very old favourite varieties to some of the newest on the market. We are currently working hard to have all our plants ready for the Spring. Come and see ourwonderful display of colour.
You can find us at various plant shows throughout the year including Hardy Plant Society, Plant Heritage, Great Comp Gardens and others. We are also at Haywards Heath Market at the Orchards Shopping Centre every Thursday and Saturday.
We have a huge car park. Our staff are always willing to help customers load their purchases into their cars.
The owner is a true plantsman so you will find many unusual plants in the nursery some may not even be on our web site as we grow new varieties all through the year. Please come and look around, we are pleased to take most credit and debit cards.
Most perennial Plants are cultivated with a Vine Weavel control and 12 month Slow Release Fertiliser. We also mix our own compost at the nursery so we can mix the soil to suit the plants which includes a dry, medium and wet compost mix. This means you won'tfind a plant in our nursery which likes well-drained soil growing in pure peat soil which has little chance of making it through the winter. This ensures our plants are sold to you in a healthy state giving them the best chance of healthy growth.
Southon Plants is a working nursery, that said we try to keep our access ways open and uncluttered for disabled access.

"A plantsman is one who loves plants for their own sake and knows how to cherish them. This… concept… may include a botanist: it certainly includes a host of admirable amateurs who may not know what a Molecule looks like or what it means, but they know the growing plant, wild or first-hand. To my mind they are the cream of those in the plant world, a fund of invaluable first-hand information."
