Being near plants is proven to help not only your health but your well-being - as well as bringing natural beauty to an otherwise grey and dull exterior.  Hill and Sons have helped add a little natural outlook to the patients and visitors at South Tees Hospital, thanks to the efforts of volunteer Kathy and some donated shrubs from the Stokesley nursery. The view is now much improved and will fill and mature to create a blanket of foliage, scent and colour interest throughout the seasons, with plants donated by Hill and Sons including lavenders and Euonymus Emerald and Gold.

From 2020, Hill and Sons have introduced new grey recyclable pots into their production streams.  These new Thermoform pots, supplied by leading pot suppliers Modiform, are already in use on the nursery.  "Closing the material loop" is a long term commitment of Hills with their suppliers.   Traditionally, waste processing plants have been unable to accept black pots from nurseries and garden centres as their carbon black colour renders them undetectable by the infra-red sensors and therefore cannot be channelled into recycling material.

HILL AND SONS: SUPPLYING TREES AND SHRUBS UNDER THE COVID-19 CHALLENGESIn a year that sees us reach our Centenary in growing, there can be few times that will have tested our spirits as much as the present situation, but we’ve made it through.  Keeping our ever-positive heads up on the nursery, we are continuing to grow, to respond, to deliver and to supply – all at a safe and socially sensible distance, as per the Government and Public Health England’s instructions.This means that, although our team may be reduced in number, our resolve remains the same in terms of service, plant ..
Matching production capacity to meet increasing demands means planning, investment and a commitment on site from the whole team.  This new multi-span tunnel is nearing completion at Hills Nurseries.  With ground preparation commencing in January 2020 and the framework taking shape in February, the sheeting is planned for installation this month (March) with a view to production surging forward in the Spring.Meeting landscape contractor demand for shrubs The new tunnel will cover shrub production at the Station Nursery site in Stokesley.  Covering an expanse of almost 600 square ..

A Hill and Sons has, quite literally, blossomed from its infancy growing and selling flowers and vegetables, through a period of strawberry and cut flower production to its latter-day focus on young plants, shrubs and container-grown and field-grown trees.  David Hill, grandson of the founder Alan, took over the reins at Hills in 1976, steering the business on its present course as a limited company and supplier of trees, shrubs and hedging for large planting and landscaping schemes across the North East and often further afield.  With his wife Marianne at his side and his two sons now driving the business forward, David speaks proudly of the company’s long-standing reputation which not only holds fast but will take the business into its second century with great promise.

Hills Nursery will be supporting the campaign with the supply of trees from the Stokesley nursery, grown in the field by the fourth generation family-based company celebrating their centenary in 2020.  Headlined by Mayor Andy Preston, the council's vision is to encourage community involvement and to raise the profile of the importance of tree planting, not only from an environmental perspective but from health, air quality, biodiversity and well-being angles.

The initiative will run over the next two years and the council will be supported with advice from Groundwork North East and Cumbria and the supply of trees by Hills.
