Digitalis parviflora 'Milk Chocolate'
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 nursery shop is now open for the season. We are open every day until October. Our full opening times can be found on our Contact Us page below. Our mail order continues all year round although now we are at the busiest time of year and despatch might be a little slower than normal - please be patient!
A date for the diary: Our open day at the nursery will be on Saturday 31st August 10am to 4pm. Lots of plants for sale and access "behind the scenes" in the nursery. As usual we will also have Pottertons Nursery from Lincolnshire in attendance with their superb range of interesting dwarf bulbs and alpines for sale. Also come and listen to the experts; Rob and Jackie Potterton will also be giving practical demonstrations on cultivation and propagation. Tea, coffee and homemade cakes also available.
These are some of our plants which are looking particularly good at the moment...
