When you stay get all your bedding plants and veg from the local growers and save a fortune!

The Manhood Peninsula and the South Coastal strip generally has been well known for years for the highly productive clay soil and huge number of local horticultural growers that are located here. The small, family-run nurseries produce fantastic plants of all sorts which you can buy directly.

Buying directly saves resources for everyone, and it is a pleasure to be able to support the small business that are here. So when you come to stay at Chichester Self Catering why not ensure you have enough room to take some trays of young plants home with you?

The benefits of buying locally:

  • saves you money
  • you know what you are getting
  • the plants are available to you when they are perfectly ready to be planted out
  • saves car miles and travel expenses to large garden centres
  • helps the local economy
  • talk to the growers themselves about later cultivation
