Who We Are
Nine Gables Nursery became established in May 1996; however was originally based in Thakeham at the Chesswood site (on the old site for Thakeham Roses). Whilst at Chesswood we acquired land and glasshouses in West Chiltington in 1998 and both sites were run simultaneously for a couple of years.
In 2001 we completed the transition to West Chiltington and fully relocated Nine Gables Nursery, now more commonly known as Sussex Roses. We have an acre of glass consisting of two separate glasshouses and over an acre of outside land. We continue to specialise in cut roses but in more recent years have expanded to grow other popular cut flowers, foliage and herbs.
Cut roses have always been popular but in the past couple of years with a wider variety of flowers and a change of image, we at Sussex Roses have been amazed at how well it has taken off. There's clearly a market for British grown flowers, and we've been delighted by the reception from florists, brides and customers alike with us being one of the last growers of British cut roses.
