Don't know of any in Surrey, but if you are prepared to travel over the border into north Hampshire then Marina Christopher has a renowned nursery in Medstead, near Alton and Rosy Hardy is in Whitchurch, Hampshire.  

What's eating my beans

We share our garden with lots of mice - too many to eradicate!  We have found that beans and peas are safe if you leave them to get bigger before planting out - it is the young tender shoots they love.  So we leave it til 3 or 4 pairs of leaves have appeared.  Have also used holly branch prunings to crisscross the area - they don't like getting their noses pricked
