About Us

Chailey Iris Garden is a family run nursery specialising in bearded iris, also known as Iris Germanica, or German iris, as well as Siberica, Ensata, Louisiana and Species 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.

Orders placed November to August are shipped after flowering in August/September.
Orders placed September and October are normally dispatched within 10-14 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 British and American Iris Societies.

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. We are listed as 'Holford Manor, North Chailey, East Sussex'.
