Plant Nursery

Our Plant Nursery is situated at the entrance to our gardens, at the Sandwich quayside. Open every day, selling a carefully curated selection of plants, flowers and shrubs, all which have been grown and tended to by our gardening team. Here you will find a range of plants to suits various garden positions, planting schemes and soils.

This isn't the place to find the sorts of things that line the shelves at your local chain garden centre - we specialise in the exciting, the exotic and the unusual. Indeed, over a hundred plants here can't be found for sale anywhere else in the UK. Blame it on the Head Gardener - a restless plant-o-phile, he's always on the look out for something remarkable for our garden, and keen to share it with our visitors

Every plant sold here has been grown within our estate, and depending on seasonality, are available to view in situ within The Salutation Gardens.
