by | Jan 20, 2022 | Business, Chains, News | 0 comments

Hillier Garden Centres has taken over the site previously known as Ducks Hill Garden Centre in Ruislip. The centre will go through a few days of transformation and re-open as Hillier Garden Centre Ruislip, with new Hillier ranges available from spring.

Through this new centre, Hillier says it looks forward to being part of the local community, sharing the company’s passion for plants, offering gardening knowledge and advice, and providing a friendly destination for people to be inspired.

Hillier will also be introducing its Gardening Club to Ruislip — in a recent survey, 96% of current Hillier Gardening Club members said they would recommend membership to friends and family. Joining is free, with membership benefits including: exclusive offers, points every time you shop, inspiring digital gardening magazines and more. 

“We are delighted to be adding Ruislip to our Hillier Garden Centres family,” comments Chris Francis, Hillier Garden Centre and Wholesale Nurseries director. “Ruislip is ideally located in the outskirts of Greater London and fits in well geographically with our existing centres. We are looking forward to getting to know the local gardening communities and inspiring them with our great range of quality plants and Hillier expertise. It is very exciting times ahead!”
