Last year at about this time I visited Norwell Nurseries in Nottinghamshire. In the previous week's post I featured some of the plants that had come from there. It then occurred to me that ALL the plants I had bought from there had not only survived but had grown! This, I felt, made a compelling reason for a return visit.

2. Asters and Sedums at NorwellThe nursery is owned by Dr Andrew and Helen Ward, who propagate the plants themselves and are on hand to offer advice on varieties and growing requirements. You can wander round their garden, looking for inspiration, and then find the plant you admired and buy one to take home. It is a lovely place, as I hope you will agree from the photographs.

In this second photo, the border also contains some red and orange dahlias, and is as full of flower as any herbaceous border in the height of Summer.
