Our Trade Offer
At our two Hillier Cash & Carry centres, we offer an extensive range of quality plants at competitive prices to trade clients.
We aim to offer the complete package of plants to our customers, many of which are grown at our UK-leading Nurseries site, just outside Romsey. This includes herbaceous perennials, grasses, climbers, evergreen and deciduous shrubs. As the UK’s largest tree grower we can also offer top-quality Hillier trees, in girths ranging from small 8-10cm up to larger semi-mature trees.
Our Cash & Carry teams are very knowledgeable and are glad to offer plant advise and expertise, from best plants for purpose to plant health.
Our Cash & Carry Centres
We are called Cash & Carry, but with the range of services on offer, including collection and delivery, we like to think of ourselves as more of a full trade gardening service. Our customers range from gardeners and individual designers through private and commercial landscapers and architects to developers and the construction industry.
Our Romsey Cash & Carry Centre in Hampshire is situated directly next to our wholesale nurseries. Along with Cash & Carry, we also offer a landscape collection service and are able to arrange delivery within a wide radius.
Our Sunningdale Cash & Carry Centre in Surrey is based on the same site as our Garden Centre. This means trade customers have the opportunity to shop the entire extensive Garden Centre range, with the benefit of trade prices.
Hillier has always been a pioneer within horticulture, pursuing policies that have proved both commercially and environmentally beneficial.
