A Century of Growing!

In 1920, a small corner of Loftus between Saltburn-by-the-Sea and the North York Moors, a keen grower was taking his first steps on his journey to nurseryman. He grew flowers and vegetables on his allotment and sold his produce to local markets.

This man was Alan Hill and in this year, A Hill (Nurseryman) became a reality. Fast forward one hundred years and the thriving 35-acre production nursery now operates out of its neighbouring site in Stokesley.

Blossomed from its Infancy

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.

Trees, Shrubs & Hedging

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.

Changing Landscape

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. “Not faltering for over 100 years, our customer’s expect, demand and receive the best a nursery could offer: a well-planned range of plants and trees, in number, variety and size to suit the ever-changing landscaping marketplace.”

A Hill and Sons Nursery Limited are currently supporting Middlesbrough Council in their quest to plant 10,000 trees across the region as part of the Forestry Commission’s Urban Tree Challenge.
