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 Fall Open House at Collins Nursery on Saturday, September 28th such a success. We hope that all of you who joined us enjoyed a lovely fall afternoon browsing through native trees, shrubs, perennials, and our hyperfufa pots, troughs, and bird baths. We also hope that you enjoyed sampling pawpaw fruit and the other tasty pawpaw treats and viewing botanical drawings on the Barn Door Gallery.
