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.
Hopefully the weather is now settling down a little and the plants are now growing strongly although it's still a late season.
Our shop is now open for the season and thankfully busy. If you do know what you would like it is helpful if you can send us your order beforehand so we can have your plants ready. We cannot always guarantee to get them while you wait when we are busy.
Our mail order continues all the time as long as weather permits. It is now the busiest time of year in the nursery but we are sending out as soon as we can although we may be a little slower than at other times so please be patient! Also, bank holidays curtail delivery options several times in May.
