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.
Our opening hours during October are 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday but we are closed at weekends.
We have a new range of pots this season and a good selection of composts in stock.
Our mail order service is still busy and plants are being sent as soon as possible.
For our trade customers we are open Monday-Friday by appointment only.
NURSERY OPEN DAY. We have our annual open day at Macplants on Saturday 1st September. Rob Potterton from Pottertons Nursery in Lincolnshire will once again be here too selling his superb selection of bulbs and choice alpines. We have "behind the scenes access" in the nursery and tea and cakes too!
Our shop is now open for the season and often busy. If you do know what you would like, it is helpful if you can send us your order beforehand so we can have your plants ready. We cannot always guarantee to get them while you wait when we are busy.
