Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

We are now open after a long winter

 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!


We have started to send out our plants mail order, much later than normal because of the very poor spring weather. Orders which include Chrysanthemums will be the latest to send out as they need to be propagated and growth is only just starting. Rest assured however that they will flower well this autumn. We have such a back log of orders we cannot now accept any new orders to send out this spring. -sorry this is yet another consequence of the difficult weather we have had this year,

Winter to Summer in a week

Thursday 19 April 2018 at 09:41

After the most trying March and early April summer has arrived. For many days over the past few months our garden has been underwater, with it being impossible to go on the beds without doing irreparable harm to the soil structure. This has been echoed throughout the country with fields being inundated with water and farmers being as frustrated as we are by the lack of growth and being to 'get on'. However, winter turned to summer yesterday with temperatures reaching 24 degrees C here and the waders were jettisoned and sandals dusted off. Although I'm not complaining, some of the plants did. They have been used to 6 degrees tops for many weeks and although the soil is full of water the plants were not ready for the warmth and they were drooping in the sun.
The woodland is looking magical with the Erythroniums and Trilliums etc out, if you want to see them, come soon, they will not last at these temperatures.
At last enjoy proper gardening weather, you've survived the winter, you deserve it!
