Rosudgeon, Penzance, Cornwall TR20 9AR

We grow a wide range of plants that thrive in the mild, wet, windy conditions typical of seaside areas. From hedging and shelter plants to the exotic and unusual we offer plants that are tough enough to make the amateurs’ garden to unusual enough to add something special for those that really know their plants. Among the  many  Australasian plants that we grow we stock a particularly wide range of Grevillea.

We stock a wide range of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials, many unusual and exotic, and including lots of Australasian species. Our speciality is mint bushes (Prostanthera). We grow all our plants ourselves, using peat free compost, bio friendly insecticides, no growth regulators and locally sourced material where possible.

Since the nursery opened, the range of hardy herbaceous perennials on offer has increased dramatically, and continues to do so. Check our database; it lists most of them and we aim to update it at regular intervals. Many of our perennials are unusual, although we also offer traditional cottage garden plants, and most are not difficult to grow. In addition, a small selection of half-hardy and tender plants is normally available as well as various flowering bulbs and, occasionally, a few annuals. Visitors are welcome to browse without commitment to buy, and to ask for care and planting advice.

County Park Nursery was started by Graham and Margaret Hutchins in 1955, and specialised  New Zealand, Australian and Tasmanian plants, retaining some of the more unusual plants from other areas of the world. After Graham died Paul took over his grandfather’s nursery and is in the process of moving it to Hampshire. Check the website for news of his progress; it will be updated in 2016.

Sleepers Stile Road, Cousley Wood, Wadhurst, East Sussex TN5 6QX

Our nursery is situated in 3 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside where we grow tropical plants, southern hemisphere plants and hardy plants, including lots of rare and exotic species. We grow every single plant on site and the goal is to have as many species as possible growing outside all year round. We are always adding new species and trying to breed hardiness and robustness into any borderline plants. We try to make our plants tough first and pretty second. We are self taught and take the view that plants don’t read books, so we try not to.
