Welcome to Hickory Hill!

Hickory Hill Heath and Heather is a small specialist nursery, owned and operated by Jane and Paul Murphy. We are located approximately 3 miles south of Oxford, Pennsylvania on Hickory Hill Rd (Route 472) in beautiful Chester County, PA (midway between Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD as the crow flies).

Please Don’t Order Yet

I’m sure you are anxiously awaiting spring as we are, but please don’t place an order yet.  Our plants are still under frost cloth and we won’t know the condition of the plants until we remove the cloth sometime in April, depending on the weather.   At that time we will also update the website inventory to reflect the plants we have.  We will also put a notice here  on the home page when we are ready to ship, so watch this space.

Why the Size of Plants in Your Order May Vary

We always ship the largest plants in stock.  We have two sizes of 4 inch pots – one is a true 4″pot, the other is oversized.  As the plants grow we up pot from the smaller to the larger 4 ” pot.  This allows us to continue shipping plants. We have one price for a 4 inch pot, regardless of the size of the plant.

If you buy  more than a dozen plants, we’ll refund 10% of the plant cost.  We can’t give you the discount when you order, as it’s too complicated to set the discount up on our website.
