About Us

About Us

Chailey Iris Garden is a small family run nursery specialising in bearded iris, also known as Iris Germanica, or German iris.

We have an extensive selection of high-quality iris plants grown in Sussex in the UK, with some of the best re-blooming and scented irises in the world.

We sell our irises by mail-order throughout the UK. Plants are shipped as bare root rhizomes.

Please don't delay placing and paying for your order, as plants are allocated to orders on a first come first served basis, so delaying may mean you miss out.

Order placed from December to March are shipped in April.
Orders placed April to August are shipped after flowering in August/September.
Orders placed September to November are normally dispatched within 7-10 days.
This is of course all weather dependant.

We don't ship plants with flower spikes as we find they don't survive the journey to you.

We grow our own plants, we do not buy plants in from wholesale suppliers, so we can ensure our plants are virus free & true to type. We have a unique affiliation with the American Iris Society.

Open Gardens

We open our own gardens to the public, for charity, on selected dates each year. The best time to see our personal and nursery iris beds is the spring opening, in late May or early June for the NGS and for Bevern Trust  https://beverntrust.org/

We are also members of the National Garden Scheme, and open to NGS groups of 10 or more by arrangement. Unfortunately we couldn't open in 2020 but we'll be back in the Yellow Book in 2021.
