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

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
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
