Collins Nursery specializes in container grown plants that are native to the mid-Atlantic region. Our plants are propagated from locally collected seed whenever possible. All of our plants are straight species making them suitable for both gardens and ecological restoration. Trees and shrubs make up most of our stock, although selected perennials have recently been added.
Collins Nursery is located at historic Edgehill Castle in Glenside, Pennsylvania. It was founded by John F. Collins, a Philadelphia landscape architect and former chairman of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture at Temple University. His lifelong passion for native plants led him to establish a plant nursery on his property. The nursery is currently maintained by the Collins family and nursery manager Diane Ehrich.
The nursery is open by appointment and during Open Houses in the spring and fall. Check this website for upcoming Open House dates.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Spring Open House on Saturday, May 17th a success. We hope that all of you who joined us enjoyed a lovely spring afternoon browsing through native trees, shrubs, and perennials and our hypertufa pots, troughs, and bird baths. We also hope you enjoyed the wood carving demonstration and products from Fiddlehead Toys, the array of jams and jellies from Bucks County Preserves, sampling birch beer, viewing the botanical drawings on the Barn Door Gallery, and the bluegrass music!
If you were unable to join us for the Open House or if you would like to return, you are welcome to contact us by phone at (215) 715-3439 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment. Please check back later in the summer for the date of our Fall Open House.
