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.

We drove past on our way back from Charleston yesterday but we were too late, you had closed. Never mind, another trip 😊

Look like they may fit the bill

Beautiful.
