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.
A wet bleak January with hopes for spring.

The thought of regrowth and flowery times ahead gives us the energy to do those chores which need doing but give little joy in themselves. Thus greenhouse has been emptied, sterilised, washed down and is ready to receive. A few seeds (leeks and more Sweet peas) have been set to give one the impression that spring is just round the corner. Winter has been typified by extremely mild weather and wet weather tempting Iris Katherine Hodgkin into flower as well as the intensely fragrant Chimonathus praecox. We are still celebrating the fact that we have been awarded a Plant Heritage National Collection of Hardy Chrysanths. This is a collection in conjunction with Judy Barker, the long standing collection holder, and Hill Close Gardens. We all look forward to championing these wonderful plants and we hope to have even more to sell next year so you too can have a marvellous show of hardy (no need to lift) plants with copious sprays to pick for the house and have the bees on, well into November and beyond.
May I wish you all the best for the New Year.
Please note that we are now closed, except by appointment, until March 2nd 2016.
