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!
For our trade customers we are open Monday-Friday by appointment only.
Spring is a busy time for us all although it is exceptionally dry nad we'd all like some rain! If you'd like to visit the nursery and know at least some of the plants you would like why not use our order collection facility to have the plants ready for you?
Please note that the mail order service is busier than ever and we have commitments at shows over the next couple of weeks so it's a little slower than we'd like. We are working as fast as possible though. The couriers we use have short working weeks during the bank holiday periods so delivery options are more limited than we'd like too. Hopefully back up to full speed shortly.
