C.G.J. Mathias & Son Nurseries

Third Generation Family Nursery

C.G.J.Mathias & Son Nurseries are a third generation family nursery business which has been established in Tilford for over 50 years as growers and suppliers of a wide range of hedging plants.

Our nursery is based near Farnham (GU10 2BH) and customers are most welcome to come and see our stock during working hours (8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday) before deciding which plants to purchase. As growers, we specialise in the production of all varieties and sizes of hedging plants, with a particular focus on the larger sizes of hedging.

We also grow and supply a range of trees, shrubs, topiary and pleached hedging. Our main range of hedging suitable for larger hedges includes varieties such as Laurel, Leylandii, Castlewellan Gold, Thuja, Yew, Privet, Beech, Hornbeam, Holly, Photinia ‘Red Robin’ and Portuguese Laurel and other Native Hedging. In addition, we supply a range of smaller hedging including Box, Euonymus, Sarcococca, Pyracantha, Griselinia, Lonicera and Lavender.

The majority of our production is based on container grown plants, however we also have a field grown nursery for plants that are either transplanted into containers or are sold as bare root or root balled plants in season. Our nursery production is carried out to the very highest standard of which we are incredibly proud and we believe that our plants are as good as you will find anywhere and represent extremely good value for money.

Having been growing plants since 1963, our staff have a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of horticulture and are well placed to help you with deciding what would be best suited to your requirements. Customers are very welcome to collect plants from our nursery or we can deliver using either our own fleet of vehicles or our nationwide dispatch service.
