OUR VIEWS ON HINTONS NURSERY

The owner of Hintons Nursery was not very happy with us doing a review of it although we gained enough information to give you a flavour of what this nursery can offer.

They specialise almost exclusively in plants with a limited amount of composts available outside and some gardening sundries available in the small shop.

The plants area is plainly laid out with about half of the paths being paved and the remainder in loose gravel. Wheelchairs, both the push type and electric ones are advertised as being available at the entrance. The design is simple with no pretensions to make it intricate or complicated. The plants are mainly held in wooden bays which are slightly lower than normal.

The selection of plants is good, rivalling that at some medium sized garden centres. On their website Hintons claim ' ... we also have one of the largest ranges of plants for miles.'.This claim is true with the nearest garden centres or nurseries to offer a similar range being Charlecote Garden Plants, Stratford Garden Centre and Russels Garden Centre near Coventry.

our brief inspection of the plants showed them to be in excellent condition. The sell shrubs, roses, trees, herbaceous plants, herbs, seasonal bedding - all the plants you would normally need. Being a plant nursery they grow a significant proportion of their own plants, over 70% of them. This has a huge advantage over bought-in plants because you know that, at Hintons, the plants have been raised and grown in the same climate as your own garden.

We didn't get a chance to do our normal price comparison because of limited time but the owner admitted that the were not able to compete with the large garden centres on price because larger garden centres bought in far larger numbers. This was a remark which struck us as at odds with our finding at other nurseries. Often the nurseries undercut the "big boys" on price, sometimes substantially so.

The owner stressed that one of Hintons chief advantages over many other garden centres was the level of expertise their staff possessed. They were well qualified to give good advice and were more than willing to do so if requested.

The car park looks large enough to cope with a large number of cars and is on generally solid ground and near to the entrance of the garden centre.

THE CAFE
There is no cafe at this garden centre.
