The Plants Outside Story

flower logo decoration

At Plants Outside Ltd, supplying locally grown plants is one of the key things that differentiates us from other garden nurseries.

Colin and Sharon Hawkins, the Directors of Plants Outside Ltd, have a long, local horticultural history from propagation to finished gardens. Together with their great staff and the support received from existing customers, Plants Outside has become a force to be reckoned with. This is the third outlet opened by Colin and Sharon and once again specialises in delivering high quality, locally grown plants for local gardeners in Chichester.


One of the fantastic things about this site is that it has an extensive growing area at the rear of the nursery. This helps to form the key part of the Plants Outside approach - to grow as large a range of local products as possible on-site. This assures great quality and minimises transport miles, making the plants very eco-friendly. Not all in-stock plants are grown this way. It is just not practical to manage the entire business on-site and provide the wide range of products and the level of customer service that Plants Outside's great customers like you expect. So this on-site growing is supplemented by additional lines from carefully selected local growers.

We offer various services in order to help you get the most out of your gardening experiences. From beginners to seasoned experts, from homes to commercial spaces, we’ve got you covered.

At Plants Outside in Chichester, you will find a large range of plants covering: bedding, shrubs, perennials, climbers, herbs, vegetables and more! Ever expanding, we are soon to include larger stock, such as trees and we have plans to build a tearoom on-site at the very front of our nursery.

We believe that every garden is unique, so we try to keep our range as varied as possible. As well as having the most common plants available, we do our very best to source unusual and rare plants too. We provide plants in the best possible condition, ready to take off in your own soil!

Our heart and soul go into everything we do, from growing plants to caring for them on our shelves; we don't stop until the plants we have produced find a loving home.
