Seale Rose Nursery

“Graham Thomas”

On Wednesday a group of some twenty Grayshott Gardeners received a warm welcome from David and Catherine May, whose Seale Nurseries have been in their family since 1948. David showed us the compost making and potting machinery, followed by an expert demonstration of how to bud graft a rose.

Catherine treated us to hot and cold drinks with home-baked biscuits, then left us to wander and admire the many varieties of roses, while David was on hand with advice.


Seale Rose Nursery is beautifully situated against the background of the Surrey hills landscape and our visit on a warm and sunny evening, with the fragrance of roses in the air, proved truly inspiring. Seale Nurseries are open Tue to Sat, 10 – 4 (Tel: 01252 782410)
