Allwoods was started in 1910 and became the worlds leading Dianthus specialists, their breeding breakthrough in the early 1900s revolutionized plant breeding with many techniques still used around the world. Many of our early varieties are still as popular as ever - such as the famous garden pink Doris.

Today Allwoods holds a unique and impressive plant collection like no-other in the world! The Dianthus range alone (some 400+ varieties) culminates the whole species all under one roof, from tiny Alpine pinks flowering at just 2" to Greenhouse Carnations reaching upto 6ft. There is something for everyone, every garden and every colour - some varieties even date back to the Tudors dynasty!!

It is this passion of growing that has kept Allwoods the leading growers and suppliers of Dianthus for over 100 years. But the range doesn't just stop at Dianthus, they also have a large and very interesting collection of Pelargoniums (Geraniums to you & me), unusual Succulents and many other garden plants and with so many plants the only way to see our full range is through our website, although we do offer a printed catalogue at select times of some of our range & offers.

Our nursery shop is currently under developement and we hope to re-open to the public from May onwards. When we are open to visitors you can browse around our range of garden plants - we grow so much more for our nursery shop. If you would like to visit us please email emma@allwoods.net or phone 01273 844229 and we will be happy to advice you on our opening days/times.

And if that is not enough we also send fresh, award winning carnation blooms by post. Allwoods, Flowers by Post have been sending fresh flowers through the post direct to your door since 1915, we use only the highest grade of flower and hand pick and pack each order ensuring you the best bouquet possible. Our Flowers by Post service is available throughout the year (excluding bank holidays) and more information can be found on our Flowers by Post website: www.allwoodsflowers.co.uk

You can also follow us on our facebook and twitter page and if you need any help or advice in making your choice don't hesitate to contact us we are always happy to help.

We are a genuine family run nursery, working together day to day - David is in the greenhouse and Emma is in the office and occasionally you will find our two children Edward & Daniel helping out in the nursery shop or greenhouse.

So welcome, happy growing..... and may you become as addicted as we are!
