Hartside continue success with new generation
« on: October 07, 2017, 03:45:38 PM »
Members will, I hope, be aware of the  nursery of Neil and Sue Huntley - Hartside - with their  fun strapline "plants with altitude"

As discussions continue  about the "future of specialist  plant societies" - and by extension, nurseries,   it is  good to hear that  for some of these there is an enthusiastic  younger generation coming on to succeed to the  reins .....   in this case,  Neil and Sue's son Stuart, and his fiancee, Caroline, who  were heavily involved in  winning Hartside's  Silver Gilt Medal at the recent Malvern RHS Show!   Mum and Dad Huntley  deservedly proud, as you might imagine!

Set me thinking about other  nurseries with a  continuing family  involvement in a  nursery setting .....  Alasdair Sutherland at Ardfearn, Tim Lever at Aberconwy,  Gavin and Claire McNaughton at MacPlants,  John Foley with his own  set-up ...... Helen Picton ..... how many others can we think of?

It was Potterton and Martin at the Chelsea Flower Shows back in the 1980's. Guess I must have seen Robert then but don't remember him that far back, only his father.

It is good to see that some of the specialist alpine nurseries are in safe hands into the future.

There's a lot going on with the Huntley's of Hartside!  A new baby and a new hip ...... this from Neil...

"Stuart and Caroline have had their second child, Sebastian Peter on 17th Nov. a brother to Lucas Benjamin.
 Many SRGC members have known Stuart for many years helping us at shows and more recently over the last few years they have both created the displays at RHS Malvern Spring and Autumn Shows plus Gardening Scotland this year with Lucas helping them, as well as helping us at many other shows, particularly this year when I have had problems with my hip.
 My hip replacement operation last week was successful, I am already wandering around and hoping to be fully recovered by the spring where we hope to see our many customers."

Lots of reasons to be cheerful  with arrival of the new baby and  good to hear Neil has a new hip to go with the new Grandchild. Congratulations to all the Huntleys!

Hartside  are  gearing  up  for the  new  Show  Season .... their  first  SRGC event  for  2020 will be  at  the  Victoria  Hall  Dunblane  on 22nd  February  for the  SRGC Early  Bulb Day .....  not  March as  mistakenly  written!!


 ....from Neil : Hi everyone, our earlier tweet should of course have said the first outings we are making to @ScottishRockGC  event at Dunblane and the @Alpinegardensoc Show at Pershore are February 22nd - not March! Hopefully see some familiar faces.

What is the white fringed flower in the post of September 6, 2018?

I looked in their new catalogue but it isn't shown there.
