Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and 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.
