Athelas Exotic Plant Nursery

Our nursery, based in Ninfield, East Sussex, was born from a passion to be different.  In a throwback to the Victorian era of scouring the world for something a little more interesting, we researched, planned and eventually put together, a selection of plants which we think possesses a little more character, a little more personality, and dare we say a little more fun than usual. If you like the idea of something a little more interesting in your garden, come and see us.
