Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

We are now closed for winter, except by appointment, and reopen on 1st March 2020.


Looking for an indispensable present for a keen gardener? How about a Norwell Nurseries gift voucher or a brand spanking new copy of the just published book on Hardy Chrysanthemums. As a major collaborator I can  unbiasedly say it's fantastic! For more info just type BOOK into the plant search box above.

We will start sending out our spring plants in March and will do so until about May, i.e. until they are too large to travel safely.

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 as well as the National Collection of Astrantias.

Norwell Nurseries and Gardens have again been invited into the highly prestigious Gardens to Visit in 2020  book and website. We are the only gardens featured in Nottinghamshire.

The last time I wrote the swallows had just left and now I am scanning the skies looking for their return. One year they came the last day of March and in 2017 the 3rd of April but the 10th is more typical. The winter has been reasonable, drier than average in Jan and Feb which meant we could get on with projects and not too cold with only five scattered nights of minus 9. I am in danger of becoming a sand bed bore, but it already has been beautiful this late winter and early spring and we have kept all the plants that we struggle with on the clay soil like a plethora of Echinaceas. Such was the success of the raised sand beds last year that the winter's project was to re-do the scree garden which never had enough drainage to call it a scree and was more like a Piet-Oudolf inspired prairie. Any way most plants were removed, 26 tons of sharp sand barrowed on, paths formed through it and then planting has been ongoing. There are so many gems but including more Echinaceas, Eremurus, Achilleas, Saxifragas, Paeonias, Salvias, Anemone, and rare annuals, etc. Come and see how it progresses.
