About Hartley's Nurseries
Hartley's Nurseries is now in the hands of the sixth generation of Hartleys - a rare achievement for a family business these days. Bill Hartley, a former international athlete, is the current owner of the business together with his wife, Ann-Louise. Their daughter, Annabelle, has recently joined them in the business, whilst their son, Tom, is a professional cricketer with Lancashire County Cricket Club. Hartley's Nurseries is located on
the family smallholding, which has been run as a horticultural business by the Hartley family since 1890.
Bill's athletics career spanned the 1970s and 1980s and his achievements included European Gold and Commonwealth Silver medals. His race was the 400m hurdles, plus he was a regular member of Britain's men's 4x4 relay team. Ann-Louise has over 25 years experience as a florist, since she completed her NVQ in floristry at Myerscough College back in 1993. Combined with her degree in Management, Ann-Louise has a wealth of industry knowledge to share with the Hartley's team.
