“Deal with the innovators not the imitators”

Ashton Hydroponics is a hydroponics megastore based in Greater Manchester. We Established the business in 2009 after a gap in the market was seen by director and company owner Darren Traynor. He aspired to create a shop that offered high quality products as well as a excellent service that left customers with a lasting impression. To achieve  this he needed a team who dedicated themselves to the Hydroponics industry. Allowing for not only product knowledge but a personal understanding of the industry, helping to create a unique customer experience. Our team has helped lead to our unprecedented growth over the past 8 years, which has been down to the product knowledge and amazing customer support service. Benefiting our customers in such a way that they continue to come back to Ashton Hydroponics we can guarantee, you will not receive this level of service from any other hydroponic shop.
