Harborough Nurseries on the A259 at Guestling Thorn is re-opening on Easter Sunday and will be giving out free bubbly, cupcakes and Hope and Greenwood Easter Eggs.

The plant nursery, which closed earlier this year, has been taken over by two locals with big plans to develop the business into a garden centre with a difference.

Harborough Nurseries has been taken over by Tony Howard (pictured right) a garden designer who was for many years the Head Gardener at Fairlight Hall, and Sebastien Haywood (left), an interior designer and Hastings resident with an international roster of clients.

“At first we will be having a limited re-opening on Easter Sunday selling a range of plants and gardening accessories for gardeners of all abilities and levels of expertise,” says Tony. “But further down the road, we are going to develop the nursery into a centre for great food, for educational classes and courses, and for events and a lot more besides.”

“We both love gardens,” says Sebastien, “and we will always keep Harborough working as one of the area’s favourite plant nurseries – but we also have big plans.”
