What's New

Our story began on the internet, where we met in mid 1997. Our friendship developed over the next year and grew into a romance in late 1998.  The following year, Andy immigrated to the US from Birmingham England. We were immediately married, pooled our resources, and began the process of building a home and business together in Surry.

We officially opened as a small nursery in the spring of 2002, selling home grown plants.

As the nursery grew, we received many requests for landscaping, and so another side to our business developed.

The nursery continues to evolve, adding new plant varieties and display areas. Currently, development is around three acres.


About Us

The English Connection nursery and landscape business is owned and operated by Suzanne & Andy Warner. The extensive landscaping you will see here is created entirely by us.

We have worked to create gardens which compliment the environment & renew our relationship with beneficial wildlife, such as hummingbirds, frogs, butterflies, dragonflies & song birds.

The unique environment, with over two acres of landscaped gardens, includes stone walls, Japanese & rock gardens, wooden accents, water features & streams, and thousands of plants for sale - many rarely seen in this area.

Through our growing and landscaping experience, we have acquired extensive knowledge about growing conditions (light, temperature and water requirements) and critter (deer, rabbit, etc) problems.

We care about our environment and only in extreme cases use herbicides or pesticides.

Customers regularly comment on the size of our nursery, quality & variety of the plants and our reasonable prices.

We leave all of our mature plants outside during winter, so we are assured they are hardy.
