Welcome to Rapkyns Nursery, a cottage garden nursery, set in an idyllic countryside location, specialising in perennials, shrubs, climbers and grasses, all grown ourselves on site.

Opening March to the end of October on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (excluding 1st Sat of each month where we can be found at Forest Row Community Mkt) we are open from 10.30am - 5pm. Other times by appointment.

As well as visiting the nursery, you can find us at many events such as local plant fairs, farmers markets and National Garden Scheme open gardens. We are able to take orders for plants to any of these locations for collection or offer mail order between September and April.
