Avondale Nursery

Welcome to our 2021 Website

The nursery is currently closed but will re-open on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.

Our nursery and display garden, situated just outside Coventry (directions here), is full of rare and unusual perennial plants from spring until autumn, with extensive collections of Geum, Geranium, Crocosmia, Agapanthus, Salvia and Helenium.

Our nursery is centrally located, easy to find, and plants on your wish-list can be seen growing in our Library Garden when you visit. We're happy to reserve plants for collection, or take them to plant fairs if they are closer to you than the nursery, but sorry, we don't offer a Mail Order service.

New Season!

After a challenging 2020 we are hoping for a more 'normal' 2021 and have been busy propagating plants and expanding our range in anticipation. Alongside this we have been altering the layout of the nursery to accomodate more plants, and have relocated and expanded our shade tunnel. We hope you like the new look and enjoy browsing the fantastic range of new plants. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Our Plant Collections

We are National Collection Holders for three plant families, Symphyotrichum (Aster) novae-angliae, Anemone nemorosa and Sanguisorba. The first to flower are our Wood Anemones which will be on display in March. Our Sanguisorbas are in flower throughout the summer, and over 50 varieties of Michaelmas Daisies are on show in our display garden in September. Most plants in the collections are available to buy in the nursery. Take a look at our Collections Page packed with information and photos dedicated to all of our collections.

The Library Garden

Visitors often use our garden like a reference book, as all of our plants are clearly labelled. There are areas planted up for both sun and shade, encompassing all the seasons from late winter through to autumn. Entrance to the garden is free, except on Charity Open Days and for group visits.

Check out the Library Garden tour here.

There are over 130 additions to the catalogue this year, including a new white flowered Persicaria called 'Avondale Sparkler' - a real stand out performer! Alongside this we have Anthemis 'Celia' bred by Dr Hugh Wilkie at Winterbourne House and Garden.

We continue to expand our range of perennials and have a greater selection of Erythroniums and ferns for the new season. Click on the catalogue link for more infomation.

Garden Visits

For a small charge we’re happy to arrange visits for garden clubs and societies. There is an introductory chat, garden viewing and the opportunity to ask questions about the plants. Refreshments are included. Russell’s stunning Quarry Garden, on the same site, is also well worth a visit, especially in late spring, with a dazzling display of azaleas and rhododendrons.

Mail Order & Availability

If you’re visiting the nursery for a particular plant, it’s advisable to phone or email beforehand to avoid disappointment, especially later in the season.
