North Hill Nurseries and the Covid-19 Outbreak - Updated June 7th 2021

Cash and Carry will continue to operate WALK IN SLOTS  for REGISTERED CUSTOMERS. 

If you would like to take advantage of this you can just turn up at the Nursery, the gate will still be closed but give us a ring and we will let you in and allocate you a space.

In the unlikely even that we have too many visitors to maintain social distancing we may ask walk-in customers to wait until another customer has left the site.

COLLECTIONS and DELIVERIES are continuing as usual AND THE USUAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS REGARDING CANCELLATIONS AND POSTPONEMENTS WILL BE APPLIED.

Our History

North Hill has its origins in the late 1940’s when it produced mainly open ground stock and specialised in roses during the 1960’s.

As time has moved on the nursery has evolved, embracing innovations such as containerised growing in the late 1970s. In the early 1980’s the nursery started to extend its range to include herbaceous perennials, shrubs and trees. Over the years, we have continued to expand our range of perennials and have added a wide range of new and interesting species and varieties, offering a comprehensive selection of plants that you will be unlikely to find elsewhere.

Reducing Our Environmental Impact

As part of an industry that has a positive attitude to the environment we are always looking for ways to help reduce our impact on the planet. To date we have made these changes:

  • North Hill Nurseries have been using 50% peat reduced compost mixes for some time and have been trialling PEAT FREE COMPOST mixes with some success. We will be aiming to further reduce the peat content of our composts so that our own production will be peat free by the end of the 2021 season at the latest.
  • Our own production has been moved over to pots that are able to be recycled at the kerbside. Additionally, these pots are made from at least 98% recycled plastics - even better, these plastics are recovered from the UK and the pots are made in England so their environmental footprint is even lower as they have not been transported internationally.
  • Whilst we still have to use plastic labels to comply with Plant Passporting Requirements these are also recyclable where the facilities to do so exist.
  • All of the plastic, cardboard, paper and metal waste that we produce on site is recycled and the waste compost and plant material (and some shredded wastepaper) is recycled as soil conditioner in our field growing operations.
  • We use advanced controlled release fertilisers to reduce the leaching of nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates into the local watercourses.
  • We collect rainwater and irrigation run off and re-use it on the crops. This has the dual effect of reducing the use of treated mains water as well as allowing the plants another opportunity to recover any leached nutrients.
  • We significantly reduce our chemical pesticide usage by using Integrated Pest Management. This involves using environmental and physical controls along with Biological Controls and Biopesticides before resorting to chemical controls.
  • More efficient delivery planning reducing vehicle emissions.
