volunteeringWhen I first starting thinking about running my own nursery I didn’t know anyone in the industry and would have loved to have the chance to volunteer on a plant nursery to learn the ropes. 

Thinking back to those days and how much I could have learned from others, I would like to offer aspiring gardeners and horticulturalists the chance to volunteer at Hare Spring Cottage Plants this year. 

Perhaps you are studying horticulture or are just keen to learn more so that you can put it into practice in your own garden. Whatever the reason, I can promise plenty of fresh air, fun, variety and knowledge.  As anyone who knows me will tell you, I love sharing everything I know and have learned about hardy plants. 

Every day is different on the nursery and there are always plenty of jobs to be done.  You might even find yourself getting prized show plants ready for RHS Chelsea Flower Show! 

If you feel like you’d like to join us please get in touch with Stella by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Hare Spring Cottage Plants is based in the beautiful Village of Alne in the Hambleton District of North Yorkshire.

Oh – and we pay our volunteers in plants!
