"Great place for all gardening needs. Excellent place. Went for the first time will definitely come back. Brought lots of herbs and vegetables. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Could spend the whole day there."

"Best nursery for miles around!
Sally and her team are extremely knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. I’ve been buying from Hillcrest for over 20 years and most of my garden has come from here. Prices are very good too. Highly recommend."

Derek S

"Superb. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, which is rare enough these days. Their stock is excellent in both the choice available and the way in which it is maintained. If that was not enough, my wife and I have been astonished at the kindness and support of everyone there."
