I am retiring!

I have decided to close Hopleys Plants to visitors at the end of October 2018 at which time we shall have been trading for 50 years, I shall be 60 and will have spent 37 years working at Hopleys full time and mostly 7 days a week.  The time seems right to try something new!

During 2018 we are propagating and growing a full range of plants as usual for sale at Hopleys and by mail order;  we are exhibiting at numerous shows;  Hopleys Garden remains open free of charge;  Hopleys Café and Hopleys Garden Shop operate as usual;  Jan’s Garden Design business will continue and we anticipate a busy season of activities and events in the garden.  We suggest you put a visit to us in your diary or arrange a group tour of the garden before we close!

In 2019 and beyond we expect Hopleys Café, Hopleys Garden Shop and Jan’s Garden Design to continue, but we will otherwise be found on a beach somewhere or tinkering in the workshop!

Please keep an eye on our website to keep appraised of developments.

Chatsworth Flower Show from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th June.  You will find us in the Devonshire Marquee, stand no 270.
