Gentiana 'Eugen's Allerbester'
'Autumn gentian'from £5.00
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 nursey shop is now open as normal (Mon-Fri only through October) although we are restricting numbers allowed in at any one time so that social distancing can be observed. This may mean that at busy times there may be a short wait before you are invited into the sales area. We would be grateful if you could read our guidance notes https://www.macplants.co.uk/Guidance prior to your visit. Hopefully this will enable you to safely relax and browse our extensive plant range in comfort.
THE ROAD FROM THE A1 TO MACPLANTS MAY BE CLOSED AT THE MOMENT . WE ARE OPEN FROM THE PENCAITLAND END. SIGNS MAY SAY DIFFERENTLY BUT LOCAL ACCESS TO MACPLANTS IS POSSIBLE AND NO PROBLEM FROM THIS DIRECTION!
We are still operating our online mail order service as normal and will send out new orders by courier as soon as possible. We have been experiencing very high volumes of business as people spend more time in their gardens, it may therefore take slightly longer than we would normally like to process larger orders. Please bear with us as we work to keep up with demand. In rare cases, we will contact you if there is an issue with your order, otherwise it is safe to assume that your order is being processed as swiftly as possible. We are on occasion having to temporarily close our mail order service. If you do find it closed, please try again in a few days.
Unfortunately we have decided that we will not be holding our annual open day at the end of August this year.
We will keep updating our customers with any developments if and when we need to make any changes to our operations. Please keep checking our website or social media channels.
We wish you all good health. Keep safe everyone.
