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.
Happy New Year! Our retail shop is now closed until March although we can be open by appointment for anyone wishing to collect orders. Thank you to all our valued customers for their support over 2015.
Our mail order service is back to normal after the Christmas break, although the excessively wet weather is slowing despatch slightly. We still aim however to send out most orders within seven days.
For our trade customers we are open Monday-Friday by appointment only.
It's snowdrop season! We offer a range of named Galanthus cultivars. These delightful winter and early spring flowering bulbs really do exist in a wide range of forms. We do pot-grown bulbs, not dried bulbs or "in the green". Keep watching as we will add more to this list in the coming weeks!
