Water Crest Farms Nursery was established by William D Wells on a small farm in Southern Chester County in the early 70's. The nursery was originally planted to support the landscape company W.D. Wells & Associates.  The focus was on growing larger specimen evergreens and ornamental plants not available locally.  By the mid 80's the need for a larger farm to grow trees and shrubs was apparent and space for the growing landscape company prompted our move to our present location in West Grove , PA.


In 2012 the decision to close the landscape division and focus on growing and selling a complete line of the highest quality plants was made.  This move allowed us to concentrate fully on supplying both professionals and homeowners with great plants, service, knowledgeable and friendly staff. 


While we are known for our premium large American Hollies, mature specimen ornamentals and evergreens, we grow and stock much more including perennials, trees, shrubs, screening plants, evergreens & native plants in a full range of sizes to suit all needs.


For over forty years,


"Exceptional plants, exceptional service for professionals & homeowners"
