Signature hedging and groundcover plants are produced by Golden Hill Nurseries which is a production nursery. The majority of the plants that we grow are produced on our own nursery from seeds or cuttings.
We have a display area at the front of the nursery. However, if you wish to view all our stock please bring suitable footwear to walk around our working nursery.
We are open 9am - 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am - 4pm Sundays from 20th February - the end of October.
Winter opening hours:
9am - 4pm Monday to Saturday
We are closed from the 25th December until 5th January.
Please note :
We closed on Sundays from beginning of November and re open on Sundays from late February.
The majority of our shrub and conifer production is by cuttings while herbaceous plants and grasses are mainly produced by division or seed Cuttings are usually taken into plug trays and are placed on heated propagating benches. Once the cuttings have produced roots the trays are moved to a cooler area to harden off the young plants. The next stage is to pot the cuttings into 9 cm pots.
When the plants are established and have filled the initial pot with roots they are ready to pot on into two to five litre pots according to the vigour of the variety.
The process of producing small plants takes from 6 to 18 months according to the variety.
The small plants grown in 9cm pots are usually potted on in the spring into two, three or five litre pots for growing on; either in open outdoor beds or in large polytunnels. Most would be ready for sale from from the following Autumn to early Summer.
When larger plants of shrubs and conifers have spent a year growing in two to five litre pots they are potted on into 7.5 - 20 litre containers for a further year or two outside.
These plants are grown in 25 to 100 litre containers.
They have either been potted on from plants that have been growing in 7.5 - 20 litre pots for the previous one or two years or have been potted up from field grown plants.
We have begun producing these magnificent plants ourselves. Normally mature plants will be imported to order from the continent and are available for purchase from here at the nursery. If you are interested in purchasing mature plants or would like advice please call us on 01622 833218 so we can discuss your needs. Once the plants are imported they can either be collected or we can deliver up to 200 miles away from the nursery. Alternatively we do offer a full planting service. For details please see bellow.
