Athelas (Ath) - (er) - (lass) is a plant nursery first and foremost rather than just an online plant seller. Its worth making the distinction between the two because as a plant nursery we get to know our plants, and care for our plants bring both knowledge and experience of our plants. We're not about shipping them in and shipping them out on some production line basis, for us our plants, our plant quality and our plant knowledge is what makes the distinction worth noting.
We are a retail nursery based in East Sussex nr Battle, we are open 9.00am - 5:30pm Monday to Saturday and 10am - 4.00pm Sunday and Bank Holidays. You are most welcome to visit and see first hand the range of plants and pots available with a little bit of friendly customer service thrown in to boot. Buying online is fast, secure and convenient I know, but please if you are close enough to visit, come instead it's really well worth a visit.
Well it wouldn't be an about us page without telling you something about us. We are a family affair, two sisters, Sarah and Emma, along with two husbands, Matt and Nigel and a bunch of children (free labour), and the essential helping hands from the wider family. While here pop in to the onsite tea room and farm shop, there's nothing like a cream tea after a wander around the nursery.
Athelas is about offering quality and service, yes corny I know but true, if you see our Trustpilot ratings hopefully they will help convince you. As a nursery we try to offer our customer something different from the norm. The are no sheds, bbqs, or ponds here it is simply all about plants and pots, big, bold, unusual (and usual), full of statement, character and uniqueness, while importantly not sacrificing reliability. Sincerely Matt Barfoot, Athelas Plants
