About Us


Eleplants nursery is located in the heart of East Sussex, owned and now run by myself Martin Batchelor and partner Elaine, plus help from family.

What started as a passion and side line from Farming and a 9-5 job quickly became a business.

We specialize in the unusual and even more unusual shrubs from predominantly the southern hemisphere, but! if I see It  and like it ……!.

Most (80%) are propagated on site the rest contract grown (sadly I can’t grow them all and PBR plant breeders rights)

Plants are grown in peat reduced compost incorporating slow release fertilizer all mixed by myself to matched the type of plant .(Its the former chemist in me) to ensure good growth after sales.

We pride ourselves on quality and value for money on the plants we grow, dispatch and sell at shows,
