About us

Hello, I'm Becky. I've been head gardener at Oasis Gardens in Sussex since 2003. My nurseryman husband has grown sempervivums, as well as many other plants, for retail and wholesale since 1981. In 2018, we decided to focus our decades of experience and scale-down to become a specialist sempervivum nursery for online UK sales. In 2021, we celebrated our nursery's 40th birthday!

Our philosophy is simple: we've selected the best varieties, grow the best quality plants, and offer them at the best prices.

A lot of our time is spent working non-paid for The Wildlife For All Trust. Our charity organisation owns and manages Komsberg Wilderness Nature Reserve in South Africa. Komsberg is huge: 30,700 acres in size or 17 miles across. We conserve a wide diversity of animals, but also a lot of special plant life including succulents. This links with our appreciation of sempervivums and other succulents. (See our "News" page blogs for April 25th 2018 and April 29th 2019 to watch a couple of short drone films about Komsberg.)

My husband and I have developed a critical eye for "the very best of the best", supported by many years of professional experience. We're sure you'll love our wonderful range of sempervivums - also known as houseleeks, hens and chicks, or just semps - plus our selection of other succulents. And you can confidently buy plants from us, knowing that we take pride in providing a first-class service and work to high standards. By offering sempervivums by post (plus other succulents), we're able to reach a wider UK audience - in addition to our local customers in Sussex.
