Greenwood’s first site in Sussex, home to the operations department and specialising in root ball trees and bare root hedging
Aldingbourne has a special place in Greenwood’s heart. As the company’s first Sussex nursery, Aldingborune marks the beginning of Greenwood’s expansion in the South East.
With three acres, this site is Greenwood’s smallest, but it is one of the busiest and most important. Aldingbourne is integral to Greenwood’s premium service as the hub for operations, responsible for all despatch, incoming goods and order holding.
As part of Greenwood’s vision to be the nursery of choice in terms of customer service, efficiency and productivity, Aldingbourne is due to be relocated or modernised within the next 12 months. The current site will become a display area for large and semi-mature trees, building on its current specialisms in root ball trees, bare root hedging, topiary trees and Italian imports.

Pawel Szczepanik is Aldingbourne’s Outdoor and Despatch Manager. Pawel is most proud of his fantastic team and cites their excellent teamwork as one of the primary reasons he enjoys working at the nursery so much – the other, of course, is being surrounded by plants. A strong team is essential, because their job is so fundamental: ensuring despatch is punctual, even for orders with short notice, is a hallmark of Greenwood’s premium customer service.
Pawel’s favourite plant is Nandina domestica, an ornamental plant also known as heavenly or sacred bamboo. He loves both the shape and colours of this elegant evergreen, which boasts green and bronze foliage, star-shaped white flowers and vivid red fruit. Some cultivars have wonderful fiery red foliage in the cooler seasons.
