New Arrival - Tropical Foxglove (Digiplexis Illuminations)

We are thrilled to introduce the stunning Tropical Foxglove, also known as Digiplexis Illuminations, to our plant collection. Awarded Chelsea Plant of the Year in 2012, this beautiful plant originates from the Canary Islands and is known for its vibrant, long-lasting blooms. The Tropical Foxglove is a hardy plant that thrives in sunny or partially shaded, well-drained spots, making it a perfect addition to your garden. Its eye-catching flowers not only add a splash of colour but also attract pollinators, helping your garden flourish. Plant it in our Rocket Gro Peat-Free Multi Purpose Compost with added John Innes (buy 2 bags for £13 in-store) for great results, and watch it bloom throughout the summer months. Suitable for growing in beds, borders, pots or containers and makes excellent cut flowers. Visit Hilltop Garden Centre Clacton on Sea to add this award-winning (and unusual) beauty to your garden today.

Watch the Miracle of Metamorphosis Up Close

We’re excited to offer an educational and enchanting experience with our Miracle of Metamorphosis kit. This kit provides children, students, and families with a unique opportunity to witness the transformation of caterpillars into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. The entire process, from caterpillar to adult butterfly, takes about three to five weeks and offers an unforgettable educational experience. You’ll get to watch the caterpillars grow, form chrysalides, and finally emerge as stunning butterflies. Once they’re ready, you can release them into your garden, contributing to the local ecosystem. This kit is a wonderful way to engage children with nature and teach them about life cycles. Available now at Hilltop, the leading garden centre in Essex, it’s an educational adventure you won’t want to miss.
