The Nursery is now closed (except by appointment)
We look forward to meeting old and new friends from the 2nd March 2016, when winter will be over and the green shoots of spring will be in evidence.
Roll on spring!
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.
Norwell Nurseries and Gardens have again been invited into the highly prestigious Gardens to Visit in 2015 book and website. We are the only gardens featured in Nottinghamshire.
Winter really now is upon us but in spite of minus 7 degrees C here in mid November the colour continues, you just have to look harder. The Chrysanths have looked fabulous this fall and we were delighted when several garden photographers came to take a record of the garden. Look out for articles in Country Life and Landscape magazines next autumn. Even now, Dulwich Pink, Chelsea Physic Garden and Mrs Jessie Cooper are showing what can be achieved. Throw in a Nerine Stephanie, copious Schizostylis (Hesperantha) coccineus vars and a precocious Hellebore and you have something to warm your cockles even in December.
Remember, the nights start pulling out on the 14th of December (although because the mornings get darker at a quicker pace, until the solstice, the days overall get shorter) which means Aconites, Snowdrops and Hellebores can't be far behind and then we begin again..Roll on spring.
Please note that we are now closed, except by appointment, until March 2nd next year.
Many thanks for your interest in these musings and we hope to see many of you again next year!
