About Big Plant Nursery

A potted history...

Big Plant Nursery are specialist growers and importers of hardy exotic plants including hardy exotic and architectural trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. We grow a wide range of bamboos, Japanese maples, Palms and stunning birch trees along wth a wide selection of Ginkgo varieities. We are located just 40 miles south of London in West Sussex and only 15 minutes from the coast.

Started in early 2000, the nursery has gone from strength to strength, constantly increasing the range of plants year on year, as well as increasing the amount we grow ourselves. We do bring in a selection of specimen plants from abroad but we will always endeavour to buy the plants from the nursery that has grown them, rather than buying through a middleman. All of the imported plants at the nursery have been hand chosen by us, so you can be assured of the quality and provenance of the plants.

The staff at the nursery are all passionate about the plants and will be more than willing to give you any help or advice that you may need.

What Our Customers Say

I looked at the local gardencenters for Black bamboo and thought the quality was poor with high prices and no advice on how to grow them. Big Plant nursery gave me great advice over the phone and confidence to order online. As expected the plants arrived well packaged, on time. But best of all they were so much better quality than any Iamp39d seen before....and better priced. Will definately be ordering again!

Received the 3 bamboos ordered last week. Safely packed and very healthy when removed. These are destined for 3 containers against a fence, should look lovely. Recommended.
