About Us

Wallace Plants first moved to Laughton, East Sussex, on 7th December 1998 and we are a small, family business, with at times 3 generations of the family on the nursery. 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. This list is constantly changing as we introduce new varieties we have recently discovered and also re-introduce older ones we have decided to start growing again, 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 10am till 6pm March - October and 10am till 4pm October - March, 7 days a week.
Click Here to visit out contacts page for details on how to do so; Our address is also at the bottom of the page.

A recent introduction for our nursery is a range of soft fruit bushes, including a selection of red, white and black currants, raspberries - both summer and autumn fruiting - and gooseberries.

We also stock a large range of vegetable plants and this also changes through the seasons, as different vegetables are planted at different times. Helping you to cut/pick fresh veg straight from your garden practically the whole year. We try to keep up to date with the current "fashions" in vegetables and recently there is a growing trend towards cut-and-come-again vegetables, not just in lettuces but also brassicas, which is why we now stock many selections which are suitable for this, including numerous varieties of Kale, spinach, chard and of course lettuces. A list of types and availability can be found here. 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.

Always popukar is our selection of Sweet Peas, which we have for many years been growing in purpose-made Sweet Pea tubes to help encourage good root development. And yes, all our varieties of Sweet Pea are long stemmed to be suitable for cutting and well scented! Click Here to see the current list of varieties we grow.

For many years now we have been raising ducks for the production of eggs and have also been rearing them for sale for those who wish to experience the joys of keeping ducks themselves, wether for egg production or just to see them fossick around the garden! Click here for more information.

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 locally. Simply Click Here for further details, we would be happy to bring plants to these events for you to collect.
