About Harts Nursery

Welcome to Harts Nursery online!

Harts Nursery

Harts Nursery is a 3rd generation, family-run nursery based in East Cheshire, UK. We have achieved many Gold Medals throughout our years of exhibiting at the flower shows throughout the UK, with 15 Gold Medals at the world-famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show for our colourful Lily displays. We have also received many other awards over the years including the RHS ‘EH Trophy’ for the best cut flower display in 2009 at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In 2009 and 2010, we achieved the ‘Most Creative Floral Display’ at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show

At the beginning of 2019, we were awarded the ‘Lawrence Trophy’ and the ‘Mrs. T E Rivis Prize’ for our cut flower display at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018. And to add the icing on the cake, the most prestigious award for us was the coveted ‘Presidents Award’ at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, which was so overwhelming and unexpected! The year finished with a feature on the BBC’s Gardeners’ World about our nursery and exhibit at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show 2019.

We love seeing all our lovely customers at the flower shows we visit but we can’t keep all the goodies for the shows, we wanted to share more garden treats online. So we hope you like what we have to offer through our online mail order service. We pride ourselves on supplying the BEST QUALITY and TOP SIZE BULBS (not to mention they are also award-winning) for producing beautiful flowers, teamed with great customer service, you can’t go wrong when ordering with us! We offer many different varieties of Lilies, Tulips, Alliums, Callas, Begonias and other bulbous plants to suit all gardens, that are easy to grow and give you fragrance and colour all year through. Planting and Care instructions are sent with every order.

Harts Nursery & the BBC

Over the years we have been fortunate enough to have the BBC come and visit our nursery and exhibition stands at the shows.

Anouska lilies

This question was asked by
Isobel

Hi there
my anouska lily flowers have died off,I have to pinch heads off and leave full stalks is this right? I have them in one tub,they were gorgeous and the smell unbelievable,now my question,do I bring my tub inside for winter and when and how far down will I cut stalks fully,I have ordered more different ones for planting Feb,thank you for all your advise this year as it was my first time growing anything, as I only have small balcony and I was so pleased,izzy xx

You’re welcome Izzy – glad to hear how happy you have been. Anouska is just gorgeous isn’t it!

Yes, cut the flower head off and leave the foliage and stem to die back naturally. When it all becomes brown and the stem is hollow, it can all be removed. The stalk should just pull out quite easily at this point or you can cut it off at the surface level if you wish. Lily bulbs like a cold dormant phase and can stand -20°c, they just don’t want to get waterlogged so ensure there is plenty of drainage in your pot.
