Our Broadmead Container Nursery, located next to Hillier head office in Ampfield, Hampshire, allows us to offer all year-round planting of our quality, British-grown trees.
Our British-grown container trees start off growing in our fields at Andlers Ash and Hill Farm which cover over 700 acres of land. All of these trees are transplanted multiple times by Hillier experts throughout their production. This continuous transplanting ensures the tree develops a full, fibrous root system and well-developed canopy.
All trees to be containerised are hand-selected by our lead nursery manager, who assesses their readiness. The trees are lifted as bare root or root ball from our fields, then carefully transported to our Broadmead Container Nursery and potted into the right container to allow the tree to root through for a minimum of one growing season. The potting material used in this process is 100% peat free.Contact Us
