Welcome to Norwell Nurseries

Welcome to readers of the RHS Garden Magazine, we hope you enjoy browsing our website and look forward to seeing you on the nursery and in the garden.

We are open as normal, but we are very sorry to say that due to Covid restrictions the tea room remains closed.

We are sorry but we cannot accept anymore mail order until further notice. We have had unprecedented requests and have a reduced workforce. We will get round to already received orders as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.


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 boo 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.

Never ending wet

Monday 24 February 2020 at 10:44

It's been a long time but I thought a few notes to bring you up to speed might be in order. At the moment, apart from all the usual propagation, potting on and general preparation I am trying to get the website up to date with what I hope to offer this year. Taking off some favourites that have not faired well over winter or I've over propagated in the past and need to allow to bulk up again or, more excitingly, adding new plants to the list. Although it has been a mild winter (so far) it has been exceedingly wet. The TV pictures of inundated homes tell their own story of heartbreak and our inconvenience and disappointment in wet weather is nothing in comparison. However, it will have an impact on gardens and gardeners for seasons to come as the water table has been at the top of the soil for months. I have recorded the rainfall for Norwell for the past 15 years and 2019 was the wettest year by some margin with September, October and November being the wettest months in those 15 years. Also June, July and December were notably wetter than average, after a brief respite in January 2020, after only 23 days it too has been the wettest February in 15 years. If you are on a heavy soil no doubt things look bedraggled and you may have struggled to get out and tidy up the beds in the concern that you will do more harm to the soil structure by compacting it. All I can say is don't worry, spring will come, brown will give way to green and then a myriad of colours will erupt, insects will return and very soon we will forget about the dull damp days of winter and summer will envelop us all in her warm, verdant, scented cloak.- Just hang in there!
