Marchant’s Hardy Plants25th June 2010 • Independent Nurseries • Stephanie Donaldson
Nurseries don’t come much better than Marchant’s Hardy Plants at Laughton, near Lewes in East Sussex. It is an enticing place to visit, set against the backdrop of the South Downs, and the selection of herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses is a distillation of all the best forms available. Graham Gough is the presiding genius. He sings as he works and grows a fine plant. Definitely worth a pilgrimage, especially as there is no mail order.

Entrance to the adjoining garden, which really is a must, is £2.75.
