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 that are not available locally.  By the mid 80's the need for a larger farm was apparent and prompted the move to our current location in West Grove.

In 2012, with sons Bill and David at the reigns, we made the decision to close the landscape design/install division and focus on growing and selling a complete line of the highest quality plants.  This move allowed us to concentrate fully on supplying both professionals and homeowners with great plants, service, knowledgeable and friendly staff. 


While our nursery is known for premium large American Hollies, mature specimen ornamentals, and evergreens, we grow and stock much more!


Our line of plant materials available to you includes: perennials, trees, shrubs, screening plants, evergreens, & native plants in a full range of sizes to suit all needs.
