Based in Bentwood, Hillcrest Nurseries provides a wide range of quality plants and trees. We stock plants and trees for every occasion and position in your garden.

A little bit about
Hillcrest Nurseries

Established in 1953, Hillcrest Nurseries is a family owned business offering garden plants and trees. We invite you to wander along meandering paths, surrounded by mature trees and conifers, to experience the peaceful garden-like setting of our garden nursery. We stock a complete range of trees, shrubs and perennials to suit all tastes and styles of gardening.


Many plants are grown in our nursery.  Specialist growers are used for our supply of trees, roses and rhododendrons. Local growers provide us with a large range of annuals, perennials and indoor pot plants. Fruit trees, soft fruits, herbs and vegetables are also available.


We can plant hanging baskets and pots for you or you can choose from our own range already on display. We can refill your existing baskets to order.


We are always up-to-date with new varieties and modern stock. Our team will also help you choose the right trees and plants to suit your garden.
