Macplants are a long-established, family-run business. We are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses and have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh. We also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton, and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
Our plant centre offers a huge selection of quality home-grown plants (see our list page). As well as our our in-depth ranges of alpines, perennials ferns and grasses we offer a good range of choice shrubs and bedding (when in season). Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to help in your selections.
Orders for collection can be placed by email, fax, phone or post. We request at least 48 hours notice of collection to allow us time to prepare such orders.
In addition, we offer a mail order service with a secure online shopping facility. We send all year round (weather permitting) and if a plant is on the list then it should be available.
If you would like a printed copy of our latest catalogue please send six second class stamps with your name and address to Macplants.
We are now open for the season and will be open every day till October. For our full opening times please go to our "Contact Us" page.
Our mail order service is now very busy and plants are being sent as soon as possible! Please note that there will be no mail order sent out during the week commencing 7th August due to holidays. We will still be taking orders during this time, and we will be back to sending as normal the following week.
