Welcome to those of you who have found out about us through the September / October issue of the Landscape Magazine. If you wish to see our list of Chrysanthemums just enter 'Chrysanth' in the search box above. Please note that the nursery is having a well earned rest and we are only open by appointment until the 1st of September. We look forward to seeing you then.
We specialise in rare and unusual herbaceous perennials as well as Cottage Garden Plants, Woodland plants, shade lovers, hardy Chrysanthemums, hardy Geraniums, Hemerocallis, choice bulbs and Grasses. All are grown in our inspirational gardens which are free to look around (except special charity days, when a small fee is payable) whenever the nursery is open. We have the dispersed collection of Hardy Chrysanthemums and hold over 140 varieties.
Norwell Nurseries and Gardens have again been invited into the highly prestigious Gardens to Visit in 2016 book and website. We are the only gardens featured in Nottinghamshire.

We always close in August and this year is no exception, it gives us a chance to catch up - on sleep mostly! But also on cutting down tired plants and a bit of a rejuvenation. It is typical that on the day we close I'm contacted to be told that our feature article in Landscape Magazine (Sept/ Oct edition) has come out, hopefully if you're reading this you will take some time out to come and visit us in September or October. Many of the roses are looking jaded now, waiting for a second flush for some, but not Rosa Blushing Lucy which is one of the latest to have its main flowering now. Although not heavily scented the small semi-double flowers are produced in great clusters opening mid pink and fading to nearly white so a truss of flowers is a thing of great beauty. Not only that but it is black spot resistant, which this year is a true bonus. Perhaps because of the very mild winter infected rose leaves stayed on their bushes and were then able to freely infect the new years leaves. Some plants have therefore been completely denuded and others disfigured, Blushing lucy is in shiny good health, climbing up the pillar of a pergola to about 10 ft. Highly recommended.
Wishing you a warm relaxing August in your garden and looking forward to seeing in autumn
