The Things We Do
On this page you will find a brief overview of the things that we do here at Hillside.
We offer a wide range of Bedding plants for all seasons, with over 500 varieties and colours of Bedding plants grown on site. So it will be a colourful year in your garden.
Our range of new Summer plants will be available from about mid-April onwards. We grow as much as we can, but due to space we can't grow everything, So we have a lovely nursery from Essex to help. Autumn Perennials available from about September onwards.
Shrubs (and Roses)
We have a nice selection of Seasonal Shrubs available all year round. As for Roses, we currently don't stock them. We are looking into finding a New Supplier as David Austin Roses have become too expensive to pass the cost onto our Customers.
From Annual Climbers (e.g. Black Eyed Susie, Sweet Peas, etc) to deciduous or evergreen Climbers, we've got something for you.
We grow everything you will need for your vegetable patch, raised bed or pot. From Radish to Runner and Cucumber to Cabbage, there will be something for even the fussiest of eaters.
We grow many varieties of Herb here on the nursery, From Basil to Thyme, Rosemary to Lavender, there are lots to choose from in the main season.
We have baskets and container pots ready planted. If you would like something we don't have, we can plant one up for you. Order your Summer Baskets in March/April for collection at the end of May. This will give you a nice full basket or pot when you collect. Order your Winter Baskets in August/September for collection at the end of October.
Terracotta and Plastic pots
We stock a small range of frost proof terracotta items from Naylor Drainage and Glazed pots from Woodlodge. We also have a small range of what we call "fancy plastic" pots, which are really good value.
We stock pack bulbs from Taylors Bulbs. Bulbs for Spring colour are available from mid August and for Summer flowering they are available from March. If you prefer ones ready growing, they will be available during their season.
Compost and Soil Conditoners
We sell a small range of compost to meet the basic requirements of most gardeners. These include soil conditioners, growbags, manure, the potting compost we use on the nursery and others.
