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. Most of our plants are straight species making them suitable for both gardens and ecological restoration. We carry native trees, shrubs, perennials, ferns, grasses, and ground covers.
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 Fall Open Houses on September 19th and 20th so successful. We hope that all of you who joined us enjoyed a gorgeous late summer weekend browsing through native plants at Edgehill Castle. And thank you to those of you who continue to recommend Collins Nursery to other native plant enthusiasts.
Cooler air and soil temperatures and fall rains create ideal conditions for plants to develop strong root systems before they face the stresses of next summer. We still have lots of lovely trees, shrubs, and perennials ready for planting. If you would like to return to the nursery or if you were unable to come to the Fall Open Houses and would like to come visit, please contact us by phone at (215) 715-3439 or by email at email@example.com to set up an appointment.
Please check back later in the winter for the dates of our Spring Open Houses.
