Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

Please drop in and see us, you no longer need to bring waders!

 Spring / Summer has arrived and the gardens are drying out, more importantly plants are growing. 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,

Appalling simile

Am I in trouble or what? As the weather has improved and we now have had some lovely spring days that has made gardening a pleasure I made the mistake of comparing gardening, to my wife, as being like child birth. Not a wise comparison but I had made my herbaceous bed and now I had to lie in it. What I was trying to get across was that many gardeners struggled this winter and what had been a pleasure was a chore, some telling me that they were worried that they had fallen out of love with their gardens. However, after just a few days with the sun on their backs the joy returned and quickly the memories of wet and sleety days weeding receded and just like child birth we felt happy to go through it all again for the pleasures that would ensue. Hopefully, you have fallen in love with your garden again too. Dr Andrew Ward
