WELCOME TO OUR UNIQUE COLLECTION OF PLANTS
Who are we...Welcome to Allwoods and our wonderful, unique range of plants! We have many interesting and unusual varieties, some dating back to the Tudor dynasty and others that you simply will not find anywhere else!! We grow the old with the new and our passion is to keep these varieties alive.
Allwoods history isn't just in the collection of plants they grow, it is also in their breeding work - many of the long flowering pinks that are on the market today is thanks to Allwoods plant breeding breakthrough of the early 1900s when they crossed together perpetual flowering carnations with old fashioned Dianthus Corraphilius. This cross unlocked the door to many succesful hybrids whcih are still apearing today, such as the world famous Doris.
Co-owners David & Emma both have horticultural backgrounds and is in fact how we met originally, as each of our parents & grandparents had specialist nurseries. In October 1994 we took over Allwoods and set-to in revitalising this very unique collection of Dianthus plants, some even dating back to the Tudor dynasty!! In 2012 we moved our nursery from Sussex to Surrey and inherited a very unique collection of Pelargoniums (Geraniums) and Fuchsias
