Anthos Plants - Wholesale Nursery Surrey

Business as usual during the nursery refurbishment

We would like to reassure all our existing and prospective customers that we will be open for business as usual throughout the current refurbishment of the nursery. See the articles on the Development News page for up-to-date progress reports.

A temporary new home for our plants »

We have been busy moving plants from the old tunnels (yes, we still have some of our own production).  Time is of the essence as the caterpillar tractors are working so fast demolishing the old structures.  It's all hands to the pump.

Refurbishment begins in earnest »

The day we had begun to fear would never come has finally arrived.  Last Monday the Herris fencing was delivered, and on Wednesday the demolition team moved in.

Anything here for the Time Team? »

It was a tense (though fascinating ) time as the diggers demolished old poly tunnels and a glass house in order to dig test pits for the County Archaeologist.  The aim was to see if any items of historical interest lay beneath the surface. 

Why use Anthos Plants?

Since we took over the long-established Van den Broek Wholesale Nursery in August 2008 it has been our aim to preserve and blend the best of the old - such as the existing friendly and knowledgeable staff - with a fresh enthusiasm and a focus on quality and customer service.

We grow a range of trees, amenity and ornamental shrubs, hedging and specimen conifers, herbaceous perennials, grasses and ferns, in various pot sizes. We also stock tree stakes, loose bark and a variety of bagged composts. We are conveniently situated in Surrey, close to Junction 11 of the M25, just outside London.

We supply mainly landscapers, developers, garden designers and professional gardeners. One of our primary aims is to make our customers’ lives easier by providing a top quality, value for money, one-stop service:

  • We can source almost any plant; if not from our own stock then from our reliable and quality suppliers
  • We are always happy to see Cash & Carry customers, so please feel free to come and look around.  While the development works are in progress though we will have less Cash and Carry stock than usual, so it would be a good idea to ring first to check if we have what you want in stock
  • It’s also fine with us if you want to bring your customers with you. If you want to send them in on their own we will follow any instructions you give us as to what to show them, what prices to quote etc.
  • Alternatively, be like a large number of our customers and place your orders remotely by telephone, fax, or email
  • We have no minimum order value
  • We will assemble orders here for your collection, or use our at cost delivery service if that’s more convenient for you

Judging from the number of repeat and regular customers we have, we must already be doing something right. However, if there are other nursery services that you would value, come and talk to us about them. We are independent and make our own decisions, so we may well be able to help.


"As a landscaping business working on mainly commercial projects, we have to tender for most of our work. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anthos Plants."

"They speedily produce quotes for us, whether from architects’ plans or our lists. They never sub without asking us first. Their plant orders are ready when they promise - complete, labelled and of good quality."

"In today’s competitive world it’s a huge help to have such totally reliable suppliers."
