Terms and Conditions

QUESTION – Why do you only open on certain dates and not all of the time?

ANSWER – Because we are first and foremost, a busy mail and internet order nursery and so are not focused towards having visiting customers on site. We have constant movements of heavy machinery and lorries that are not consistent with a providing a safe environment for visitors and our staff are busy fulfilling orders. By opening on a few specific dates we can provide a much safer environment and dedicate our staff to visiting customers on these days.


QUESTION – I cannot get to your sales dates, can I visit the nursery at another time?

ANSWER – For the reasons outlined above we are not open for visitors to the nursery outside of our scheduled opening dates.


QUESTION – Can I reserve plants that you have advertised in your sales?

ANSWER – In fairness to all customers we don’t reserve plants, all stock is offered on a first come – first served basis. If you want a specific plant we advise getting to the nursery early. If a particular plant is advertised we always make sure we have plenty, but we have no control over them selling out.


QUESTION – Can I buy plants I have seen on your Hopes Grove Nurseries website or in your catalogue at your open weekends?

ANSWER – The short answer is no, some varieties are growing in the sale area and can be bought (at a healthy discount!) the overwhelming majority are not for sale at our open weekends as they are on other parts of the nursery (or even different sites) If you are looking for specific plants from our mail order range please do call to order them. (Unless of course they are specifically advertised in our Open Weekend adverts, in which case they should be available)
