About Millais Nurseries
Millais Nurseries grow one of the widest ranges of Rhododendrons and Azaleas in the world, and have an unparalleled experience of the genus.
Our Nurseries are tucked away down some lovely Surrey lanes, and surrounded on 3 sides by 1000 acres of National Trust heathlands with its abundant birdlife and wildlife, yet we are only an hour from London, or 30 minutes from RHS Wisley Gardens (M25 junction 10). You are welcome to visit our well stocked plant centre, or buy online from our website.
The Millais family has been established at Crosswater Farm since 1947, but our Rhododendron heritage goes back to the naturalist, botanist and author J G Millais, who identified and described many Rhododendrons for the first time, and published his great two volume series ‘Rhododendrons’ (1917 and 1924). Ted and Romy Millais started the nursery in 1970, and as septuagenarians they organized many exciting plant hunting trips to the Himalayas, and introduced several wonderful new species, some of which are offered here now.
Today the nursery is run by David Millais, and we propagate around 35000 Rhododendrons per year. These are supplied to keen gardeners, large estates, botanic gardens, arboretums and specialist garden centres throughout Great Britain, Ireland and Europe.
