Lovania Nurseries

Lovania Logo

Lovania was founded in Lancashire by Len, Keith and Celanie Ball in 1980. Named after the last ship that Keith’s father was stationed on during WWII, HMS Lovania was one of only a handful of ships to survive the action in the Mediterranean. It would prove to be a fitting name.


The nursery started out growing salad crops, diversifying 8 years later into ornamentals plants. In 2009, Alpines were added to their growing repertoire, for which they are now regarded industry leaders, growing in excess of 600 varieties. In 2012 and 2014, Lovania were awarded HTA Grower of the Year.
