Country Garden Shop

Come and browse our shop and you will see we have greatly increased our range of quality products for the garden as well as beautiful items for the home.

Hopleys is Growing!

Hopleys GreenhousesOur new 350m2 production glasshouse has been utilised fully for the last few years and has enabled us to grow plants more evenly and with improved quality.  As a result of this we have been able to transfer many stock plants normally kept in our Propagation glasshouse on the Sales Area and so have converted part of this glasshouse into a covered Sales Area for plants - you can now continue to buy plants even when it is raining!

The Little Barn

This is now the venue for our range of Workshops, Courses and Lectures.

We have changed our discount structure to make our prices much more attractive to Trade customers who are asked to apply to us directly.
