Give a tree a home

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”
Chinese proverb

Saturday 23 November – Sunday 1 December is National Tree Week. It celebrates the tree planting season and encourages people across the UK to care for and support treescapes.

Planting fruit trees is on our gardening to-do list this month, but most trees will tolerate being planted in November. You’ll find hawthorns, apple trees, sorbus trees, and flowering cherry at Hilltop at the moment, so give a tree a home!


We’re big fans of these pretty flowering plants, and if you pop them in your garden you’ll find they come back year after year. They’re tubers and pretty hardy. If you’re part of our Rewards Club, these are your gift for the month, so make sure you pop down to see us and collect your plant.
