Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

We are now open! (with todays proviso!) 

Sunday March 18th and under a lot of snow again, its better if you don't come today as its slippery you can't see the plants and its perishing!

 It is very wet here and plants are about a month behind, we have never had such a display of Snowdrops and Aconites for opening! 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 will start sending out plants by mail in late March also depending on weather and those that will need propagation. Most orders including Chrysanthemums will be later as we propagate them.

About Us

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 National 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 2018 book and website. We are the only gardens featured in Nottinghamshire.

February's sting

Tuesday 27 February 2018 at 10:17

For the first time in 24 years of being open the weather will stop us from commencing on the first of March. The much heralded 'Beast from the East' has certainly materialised and looking out as I write this visibility is under 200 yards and snow is accumulating more quickly than I can ever remember. There is a general feeling in the UK gardening community that this is one weather insult too much for the 2017/18 winter. Most gardeners across the country complaining to me about the wet they have endured from November onwards. However, gardeners are anything if not positive and they have been really attentive at the talks I have given and buying with gusto, they are always in it for the longer haul. Buying a plant is like playing the futures market, with a small stake but rewards of beauty for years to come. So do your best to enjoy the snow, if you get it, endure the cold, but know that in a twinkling spring will come and the many new additions to our plant catalogue will help make your garden extra special.

The snow has also delayed the start of our latest projects. The sand beds, inspired by Peter Korns which will be brick edged wave forms, full of sharp sand to grow some choice gems, have all been marked out but the first sod has yet to be cut. But the new sales bed is already to be bricked, this will provide much needed space for our two National Collections Hardy Chrysanths and our new Collection of Astrantias which I will be announcing with more of a fanfare later. Until then we will be increasing the number for sale and in the garden hugely. As ever, watch this space. Best wishes Dr Andrew Ward
