Hanging baskets at Hilltop Garden Centre

Summer Hanging Baskets

Caroline has been hard at work in the greenhouse, planting up a beautiful selection of hanging baskets. These vibrant flower-filled baskets are perfect for adding a splash of colour to your garden, balcony, or patio. Hilltop offers a variety of hanging baskets filled with trailing plants, such as petunias, lobelias, fuchsias and more to brighten up your garden, patio or balcony. These hanging baskets are relatively low maintenance, but they do require regular watering, especially during hot weather. To keep them looking their best, remember to deadhead spent blooms and feed them with a suitable plant food.

Arrival of Summer Bedding Plants

Summer bedding plants are arriving at Hilltop Garden Centre, bringing a burst of colour and life to your garden. You can find popular varieties like marigolds, begonias, geraniums and many more.
