Specialist Herb Growers - Pepperpot Nursery
PLEASE NOTE: Due to our Summer holiday, ordering will be suspended between Sunday 15th July 6pm and Wednesday 26th July - any orders placed before then will be despatched on Monday 16th July. Many thanks, Catherine
Now into our 20th year of growing herbs, we're primarily a wholesale nursery but also sell at various retail events, online and opened the nursery to the public for the first time last Summer - something we will arrange more regularly from next year once the nursery is fully set up. All dates are listed at the bottom of this page as they are booked.
In 2016 we moved the nursery from the Surrey Hills to Hampshire and are now based on the outskirts of Chawton in the South Downs National Park. We only grow on a seasonal basis, without the use of artificial heat or light, so our range changes throughout the year and is the reason why some herbs show as being 'out of stock' - they're either still growing or not being grown at the minute because of the time of year.
|The nursery is named after the landmark Pepperpot building in the centre of Godalming; the town where we lived when we first started growing our herbs.|
• Specialist herb nursery - all grown by us.
• Garden herb plants - all of the herbs are in 9cm pots
• Delivery to the UK Mainland - see ORDERS tab for more info
|Established in 1998, we have expanded from initially supplying garden centre customers throughout the South East to also selling direct at local Farmers Markets and Garden Shows.|
However, after numerous requests from customers wanting to buy directly from us, but unable to get to a retail event that we're attending, or for those who want to buy during the times when we dont attend any markets or shows, we are now able to offer a mail order service to customers throughout the UK Mainland.
All of the Herbs in our online catalogue are currently supplied in 9cm pots.

We have been incredibly busy over the last year whilst moving our nursery to the new site but we are finally there and trading fully from Hampshire. There was a huge amount of work involved in changing it from a field previously used for grazing, we had to install water and electric, an access road, put up the polytunnels and other structures and then finally move the herbs!
We were at the Spring Plant Fair at RHS Wisley in March and we'll be back there again for the September show.
We continue to supply lots of garden centres, nurseries, landscapers, florists, restaurants, gardens and other outlets whilst also selling at events at the weekends.
