What we do
Special Branch grows native trees and hedgerow shrubs from Sussex sourced seeds, raising them organically for local environment and nature conservation projects.
We're a not-for-profit organisation, run entirely by volunteers, and are part of Stanmer Organics, at Stanmer park, Brighton.

Buy trees from us?
We grow around 25 native species, which we sell as bare-rooted whips between late October and end of February.
More on the plants we supply...
Regrettably, the nursery can only offer limited placements to new volunteers.
Customers may collect their plants from our entrance, but access to our site is restricted.
