Click the picture to enlarge it.
Kings Hill Nurseries are a traditional nursery
where all the plants are grown on site. You can see the staff
and helpers taking cuttings and potting on plants. We were
surprised at the large selection of plants.

With rain being so common in the Coventry area, it's
nice to see a traditional nursery which has the vast majority of its
plants under cover. Rain or shine you will remain dry always if you
visit Kings Hill Nurseries! That's the first big plus.
The second is the surprisingly large range of plants on offer.
The third is the high quality of the plants.
As the picture above shows, there is full range of
bedding plants to choose from. But in addition, Kings Hill has a
good selection of hanging baskets of different types. They will also
plant up your own baskets for a very reasonable cost.
When you visit, don't restrict yourself to the main
covered area, large though it is. Go outside and you will see a
further set of smaller covered areas selling a large selection
of plants. These include some very healthy and reasonably priced
shrubs and herbaceous plants.
The range was extensive, we were impressed.
In season, Kings Hill sell a wide selection of
potted vegetable plants.
Because this a working nursery it's a very pleasant place to
wander round and buy a few plants. The atmosphere is relaxed and the
staff are ultra-helpful.
If you are interested in how the plants are grown,
take a wander round some of the greenhouses where the plants are
being grown prior to sale. How many of the big garden centres let
you do that! How many of the big garden centres grow their own
plants on site? Very, very few, I can promise you that. This is what
makes visiting a working nurseries such as Kings Hill a great
