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.
Our shop is now open every day until October from 10.30am to 5pm. We have a new range of pots this spirng and a good selection of composts in stock.
Our mail order service is still busy and plants are being sent as soon as possible.
For our trade customers we are open Monday-Friday by appointment only.
Spring is hopefully on its way after a rough spell and what feels like a long winter. Many plants are starting to showsigns of life again and we're all looking forward to welcoming our customers again both old and new.
Our shop is opening on 12th March 2018.
Our mail order continues all the time as long as weather permits. Please remember that many plants will be dormant over the winter period and therefore often cut back and not showing much sign of top growth. Sorry for the slight delay in sending plants out after the recent heavy snow which obviously made life difficult!
