About Us

Hilltop Nurseries is a family owned and run business, started in 1971 by John and Muriel Heyhoe on a site that was formally a small holding. With 1 greenhouse and a 2 acre plot they started growing tomatoes and cut flowers and selling at the door. Over the past 45 plus years, the business has grown and developed into what it is today. Lesley, their daughter, joined the business in 1995, after working for a high street bank and now owns and runs the business.

Hilltop Nurseries is a traditional retail nursery not a garden centre and we are passionate about plants. We still grow many of the bedding and basket plants that we sell, on the premises, making us quite unique, the rest we source locally.  We also sell herbaceous plants and alpines, bedding plants and basket plants, shrubs and trees in all sizes, fruit bushes and trees, evergreens, roses, hedging and screening and all sorts of plants in all sizes, shapes and colours plus the things you need to make them grow and keep them healthy like compost, fertilizers, chemicals and gardening products like gravel, membrane, pots and statues etc.

As well as being a traditional business we have old fashioned values and pride ourselves on our commitment to excellent customer service. Our staff have good plant knowledge and are happy to help whether it be help choosing the right plant or lifting compost into your car. We want you to enjoy your time with us.

Quality plants, customer service and value for money keep our customers coming back again and again.
