A little about us
Wallace Plants first moved to Laughton, East Sussex, on 7th December 1998 and we are a small, family business. All the plants are grown on the nursery, by us.
Since we arrived here the nursery has expanded ("grown" even!), and in this industry there is always more growing to do.
Our range of ornamental herbaceous, shrubs, perennials & ornamental grasses, both hardy and tender now includes over 1000 different varieties, species and/or cultivars. As this list is constantly changing (especially the availability over the course of the season - we try to have about 40% available at any one time), it is difficult to include everything here on this site - and certainly very difficult to have an accurate idea of what is currently available; therefore, the category headings on the left will give you a general idea of the plants and several choice varieties we grow within each category, if there is something specific you are searching for, please contact us, either by e-mail, phone, writing or even visiting us, we are open from 9:30am till 6pm March - October, 9:30 till Dusk October - March, 7 days a week. Our address is also at the bottom of the page.
We also stock a large range of vegetable plants and this also changes through the seasons, as different vegetables are planted at different times. Now including, winter and spring cropping types - helping you to cut/pick fresh veg straight from your garden practically the whole year - this season we will be stocking 42 different types of vegetable plants ( with anything from 1 to 14 varieties within each type; i.e. there will be 7 different varieties of summer lettuce). New introductions for 2009 are Celery and Chinese Cabbage. A list of types and availability can be found here, and clicking on the vegetable type will show a list of available varieties for that type. Again, if you don't see what it is you are looking for, please contact us.
We are continually increasing our varieties and trying to get hold of those rare and unusual plants for the enthusiasts among our customers, and not to mention increasing our own beloved collections. This means that there is always something new, weird and/or wonderful being grown on the nursery.
Unfortunately, we can not offer a mail order service, but if you want something put to one side prior to your arrival, do not hesitate to ask. We do, however, have plant stalls at several Farmer's Markets and Village Markets locally and Fairs and Plant Sales in Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Simply Click Here for further details, we would be happy to bring plants to these events for you to collect.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
