Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

Just a reminder that we will close for winter on Friday 26th Oct. Before then we have two NGS open days on Sunday 14th Oct and Sunday 21st Oct. both 2-5pm

Welcome to readers of both the English Garden Magazine and Garden Answers Magazine, please have a browse of our website and if in the area a browse of our gardens.

 Please see opening times for details. We are now offering tea, coffee and delicious village baked cakes all for reasonable prices. For those of you that have been asking for us to do this for many years we hope you enjoy having refreshments all within the setting of our gardens. Over the next year the room will be incorporated into the garden with new beds with new planting plans and areas being made, follow our horticultural and culinary journey!


Please remember that although we accept mail orders at this time of year we will not send them out (unless dormant) until late autumn. We cannot send, without damage, mature plants often in full flower. We know its frustrating , but that's gardening for you-the promise of things to come!

Autumn after another year of extremes

Wednesday 03 October 2018 at 08:49

The Swallows and House Martins finally left us last week and with them the pretence that summer continues. As I have said before autumn is a great season, its just a shame it precedes winter, I would have arranged things with a three season year, nicely missing out winter or perhaps just having a fortnight at most. However, the garden is full of colour the Asters, perhaps surprisingly, given the heat of the summer, are 10 days late and at their peak now with stands of mauve, pink and purple whilst clouds of blue smaller starry Asters fill the air giving a lavender haze to the borders. Meanwhile the grasses stand proud with burgundy Miscanthus heads slowly turning silver. Meanwhile this years horticultural adventure, the sand beds, continue to delight and enthrall. They have given me so much pleasure by finally allowing me to grow plants that have for so long struggled on the heavy clay. Gauras have continued brilliantly with Rosy Jane, a picotee pink and white bi-colour and the incredibly pure white Snow Bird looking particularly fine. Nerines are coming out too with N. Isabel with its lipsticky pink crystaline flowers unfurling in a few days time.
Got to end of this piece and haven't yet mentioned Hardy Chrysanthemums; in mid October and beyond the best is yet to come!
