Bulbs  
 

We offer a wide selection of alpine, bog and woodland plants, an exceptional range of bulbs in season and a selection of specialist trees and shrubs.  We have plants from all over the world, a truly international collection, grown here on our Scottish nursery.

Our plants are available:
• by mail-order from our online store
    or from our printed catalogue,
• at several flower shows and
• in stunning garden plantings
    which we would be pleased to design for you.

We also sell bulbs, which can be pre-ordered in season.



Plant of the Month

Gentiana septemfida
is one of our many summer flowering Gentians
which are looking fabulous at the moment.
It has intense blue flowers
and will thrive in a sunny, well drained spot.



 
AWARDS - Chelsea Flower Show Gold medallists 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018.  Farrer Trophy for best Alpine display at an RHS show 2016 & 2017
 




Our catalogue is continuously updated and includes many rare and unusual plants we are introducing or re-introducing this year.  
Do come back if you don’t see what you’re looking for now  - new plants will be added as they continue to grow throughout the season. 
Some are only available in small numbers, so you may need to be quick.

If you would like advice as to what might look good in a particular area of your garden, we are very happy to make suggestions. Are you building a rockery, developing a pond, or revamping the herbaceous border?  Do contact us for advice.

The printed version of our catalogue is available at shows and talks, or on receipt of 3 first class stamps, from May each year.

PLANT STORE
 




We offer an exceptionally wide range of bulbs to pre-order in season, (January to March and May to July). We open our bulb store early and close it early! We publish two bulb catalogues online each year: • In May for Spring (& Autumn) flowering bulbs to plant in the Autumn; • In January for Summer flowering bulbs (& dormant plants) to plant in the Spring.

  The bulb store is currently closed.

BULB STORE
 

Transform your garden with skilful design and inspired planting plans. We specialise in rock gardens, stream sides and woodlands, creating fabulous planting lists to give colour all through the year. 
We work very closely with clients, helping them to develop their own ideas, to create the garden that they want.
Recently we have been involved in a number of exciting historic rock garden restorations.

We also create whole gardens, working with landscape architects and garden designers.
