Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement.

In this unprecedented time we have taken what we believe to be the correct decision and, as per the Government directive given on the 23rd March, both our Nurseries at Heddon and at Ovington will be closed to the public until we are advised otherwise.

It is imperative that as a nation we stand together and take heed of the information provided and do all that we can to stop the spread of this virus. As individuals we can all do our bit, collectively we can do a lot more and help reduce the inevitable strain that will no doubt be put on all the front line and support workers in the NHS and elsewhere.

By closing both nurseries to the public we can reduce the risk to customers and protect our team as best as we can.

We have also made the decision to close our order books and online shop for the short term as the situation before us is unclear. We will be doing our utmost to despatch all orders already placed for Dahlias and Chrysanthemums with the aim of getting these to our customers within the timeframe requested. However, there will be inevitably some delays as the season progresses and we hope that you will bear with us at this difficult time which is affecting all of our everyday lives.

We wish all our customers well for the weeks and months ahead.

To all the front line Workers in the NHS and other services, we salute you.

Take care and stay well.

The team at Halls of Heddon.


We are a family run plant nursery, with two sites in Hadrian’s Wall Country. Our Heddon on the Wall nursery acts as our main retail base with ┬átrees, shrubs and garden sundries alongside a wide range of herbaceous perennials, seasonal bedding and veg all home grown at our Ovington site.

Although a smaller retail site Ovington boasts the wider range of perennials and some impressive Herbaceous borders that the staff the are bringing back to life.

Established in 1921 we started specialising in Dahlias and Chrysanthemums now sending them world wide. The fields at Heddon are a sight to see with over 10,000 plants in flower to see between late August and the first frosts of the year.
