Welcome to Athelas Plants

Our Nursery

Athelas  (Ath)-(er)-(lass) is a plant nursery first and foremost rather than just an online plant seller. It is worth making the distinction between the two, because as a plant nursery we get to know our plants, care for our plants and have both knowledge and experience of our plants. We are not about shipping in and shipping out on some production line basis, for us our plants, our plant quality and our plant knowledge is what makes the distinction worth noting.

What our customers say

  • We've been past here a few times and decided to have a look. Wow what a find. So many plants to choose from a lot of which are not normally found in garden centres. Shame we don't have a bigger garden to put some in. Hope cottage tea shop next to it is worth a visit too.

  • I often visit this nursery and have seen it grow over a number of years. I always come away with a plant or too. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and there is always a wide selection of plants on offer. Particularly more tropical ones and amazing mature cacti.

  • I use Athelas all the time as I am a landscape gardener. The service is superb and the range of plants is fantastic. Its great to see a family run business that sets the standard.

Popped in this morning with coffee first at Hope Farm shop. Bought couple more shrubs. Lots of lovely plants. Like being in the Med with such tropical plants.

Oh that’s a shock Our garden is testament to the care you have put into your plants, a good 90percent have come from Athelas. So thank you & we wish you all success in future ventures, whatever they may be.

Emma when do the bougainvillea and oleanders arrive?

No you can’t we need you 😥

Oh no. That's not good news. I love your wonderful plants. I would buy it if I could.

Sad news for us but very exciting for times for you all! Jackie Richardson, Stephanie Taylor, Mia Ashford can we club together and buy it? (I wish!) xxx

OMG Nooooooo! Best plant nursery in the area. What are we going to do? So sad. Brilliant plant knowledge and help. Fingers crossed that someone will have the foresight to buy this brilliant place. Good luck to you xx

Yeah was just thinking the same, dream job xx

Ohhhh no. You are so specialist, that’s terrible news. Please, please,please don’t sell to someone who doesn’t share your same love of the exotic. There really is no where else. Having said that, I’m sure I’ll see you soon, but if not, good luck for the future.

That's very sad news for all of us customers but hope you have a great next adventure. Let's hope your purchasers keep things as they are and keep selling what we love to look at and buy.

Oh no, you are the only place I like to get my plants - such a shame

Oh no, John is going to need counselling!!! You have all been amazing, and we wish you every success for the future. X

Remember buying plants almost from day one , lovely people

Oh no we will miss you - but we wish you well in your next adventure - don’t loose touch xx

Oh we will miss you. Such a wonderful nursery.

Need help finding buyers?

Whaaaa? Nooooo! Don't go! I love coming out to the nursery. You give such great customer service and advice. Oh I'm feel rather sad but wish you the very best.

Good luck to you all 👍🏻

Will be sorry to see you go - have bought plants from you and always taken visitors coming to stay to see you and they too always loved returning home with a plant or two. Your advice has always been valuable.

We love your plants Paul Langridge and I drive especially to you from well over 2hrs away because of your excellent selection of healthy plants and your exceptional knowledge. Will be truly sorry to see you close.

Phil David Sheppard we need to win the lotto!

So sad to hear this but wish you all the very best for the future xx

No! We only discovered you last year. All the best
