About Us


How Green Nursery is a wholesale nursery established in 1982. The family run nursery occupies a five acre site, just 15 minutes from Junction 6 of the M25.

We supply quality, site-grown plants to garden retailers, landscaper gardeners, designers, open gardens, historic houses and local authorities in the south-east.

We also have many years experience supplying seasonal bedding plants, planted containers and hanging baskets for a number of major local authorities.

Garden Retailers

Our customer base ranges from large garden centre chains to small independent traders.

All fall within a 50 mile radius of the nursery ensuring reliable weekly deliveries throughout the year.

We provide weekly availability lists (looking good lists) all year round which can be downloaded from our website.


Landscape Gardeners

We supply many garden designers and landscapers who appreciate our extensive and varied range of plants.

Trade customers are welcome to visit the nursery to hand pick stock, delivery can also be arranged.

We can now source shrubs, trees and hedging of all sizes. Please phone or email for a prompt quote!


Local Authorities

We have thirty years experience in growing seasonal bedding in large volumes to meet set deadlines with various major local authorities.

Summer and winter bedding schemes are catered for, as well as planted containers and hanging baskets.


Stately Homes

We operate a merchandising service to stately homes and gardens open to the public.

Our weekly visits to these gardens ensure that we stock them with colourful plants to capture the imagination, and guarantee sales.

We also endeavour to provide plants to sell that can be seen in the gardens during the season.


General Public

We are purely a wholesale nursery, but do attend a small number of garden shows throughout the year.

We also run a very popular series of public open weekends. These are limited to three a year, one in Spring, Summer and Autumn. (Dates shown on our home page).

Come and browse our huge range of plants and enjoy home-made tea and cake in our summerhouse and garden!
