About Us

Laurence Hobbs Orchids Ltd have been established in Sussex since 1987. Managing Director, Laurence Hobbs, gained an honours degree in plant biology and worked for several years at Stonehurst Orchid Nursery before setting up his own business as an Orchid grower.

The nursery is situated close to junction 10 of the M23/M25 motorway near to Gatwick airport. The greenhouses have a fantastic variety of orchids on offer, many different species and hybrids are available including Phalaenopsis, Paphiopedilum, Dendrobium, Cattleya, Vanda, Oncidium and Coelogyne. If you have been searching for a specific plant, we will endeavour to find it for you.
