Trees, trees, trees
At Christmas time, Bunkers Hill is transformed into a winter wonderland, with a forest of Christmas trees for you to explore and discover your perfect tree. Choosing a Christmas tree from us is an exciting tradition which keeps people coming back year after year.
Hundreds of trees to choose from......
Our Christmas trees range from small 3ft trees right up to 12ft+ specimens, with a choice between traditional Norway spruces with bright green foliage or popular blue non needle-drop Nordmann Firs. If you want a tree to plant in the garden after christmas there will also be a good selection of pot-grown trees available from early December.

Freshness guarantee: Our Nordman low-drop trees should last well beyond Christmas if given the right conditions. If you have any problems please let us know before Christmas so we can put it right (we want you to have a special tree & come back to us year after year).
The Cycle-athon is Back!
This Christmas we need your help to get to the North Pole!
From early December we will be holding our second Bunkers Hill Cycle-athon. We will be aiming to get Father Christmas home in time for christmas
by cycling a daunting 2,800 miles on exercise bikes - the distance to the North Pole!
We are starting the challenge on Saturday 8th and will run up until the 24th December. Last year your support was incredible and we would love for you to clock up some extra miles on our team of exercise bikes. (Reindeer and elf costumes supplied!)
Your support for this event last year raised an outstanding (£6,286.31 raised for Mind and Restore at Christmas 2018!). We will be supporting both these charities again this year
Both these charities do amazing work raising awareness of mental health.
Why not book your spot to avoid disappointment or queuing - if everyone could spend ten minutes or more on a bike then the miles will soon add up.
We tragically lost our son Jack in 2017 and Christmas is very difficult not just for us but also his good friends. By taking on this task we hope not only to raise funds for some incredible charities but also raise awareness of mental illness and suicide in young men.
If you would like to support us please follow the link above, pop by the nursery to donate or email us if you would be able to volunteer some of your time to help us reach our goal.

Wreaths, Holly & Mistletoe
As well as christmas trees, from early December we have masses of wreaths and bundles of holly and mistletoe for sale at the nursery, in all shapes and sizes. There will also be christmas tree stands and other festive decorations. We will be open until 7pm every day during the christmas period so plenty of time to come to choose your tree after work and school.
*Free hot chocolate for all customers during the christmas season*
Christmas Tree Stands
If you've had enough of propping your tree up in a bucket, only for it to wobble precariously every time the dog wags its tail, now is definitely the time to invest in a Christmas tree stand. We have study plastic stands for various heights of tree as well as a decorative metal design.
Green plastic: £20 - £40 (dependent on size)
The return of the Reindeers!
Due to ovewhelming demand, a herd of wicker reindeer have descended on the nursery for Christmas.They make great festive decorations, either indoors or out, and are a hit with both children and adults. Why not buy a few rudolphs and make a little herd in your garden?
They are available in several different sizes
