As we wind down our nursery ready to close at the end of October we are preparing for our

Half Price Clearance Sale

Starts Saturday 29th September and continues until the end of October.  As well as our usual stock we shall also be selling our larger specimen stock plants.  Please note that we do not reserve plants.

We anticipate a particularly busy first weekend of the sale so please allow sufficient time and expect some queueing.

Please bring your own boxes and bags if you can.


Our Last Show

We have recently had an exhibit at the Wisley Flower Show.  This was our 351st and last show we shall be doing!  


Mail Order ended

In view of the nursery closing all Mail Order has now ceased.  We thank you very much for your past custom and hope that you may be able to visit our nursery before we close completely at the end of October.

The stocks shown within this website are not now updated.  Please take them as an indication only of the plants we still have available for purchase at Hopleys.  Our remainder stock is selling fast so please ring to check availability before making a long drive to visit. 


Although we are closing our Nursery at the end of October, Hopleys will be continuing as follows during 2019:

 Hopleys Garden will be open,

 Hopleys Shop will be open, including some plants.

 Hopleys Café will be open, 

 Jan's Garden Design will continue.

Please keep an eye on our website for further information.


For those you don't already know, I am retiring!

I have decided to close Hopleys Plants to visitors at the end of October 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 have propagated and grown a full range of plants as usual for sale at Hopleys and by mail order;  we have exhibited at numerous shows;  Hopleys Garden has been open free of charge;  Hopleys Café and Hopleys Garden Shop are operating as usual;  Jan’s Garden Design business continues and we have had 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!  Note that our Clearance Sale starts on 29th September.

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