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 will be opening for the season on Monday 12th March. We will then be open every day until October. Before then we are open by appointment or for order collection over the winter (Mon-Fri only).
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.
Winter is on its way after a decent autumn and colder temperatures are already starting. There's still pleny of of work to be done in the nursery and plans are already underway for next season.
Our shop is now closed until March 2018. Thanks to all our customers for their support during the past season and we look forward to seeing you again in the spring. We are open by appointment over the winter should you wish to visit. Time for a short rest before things will start again in the New Year!
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.
