Due to the size of this catalogue we have split it into groups. However some connections may find that the shrubs section takes rather a long time to down load as there are in excess of 440 entries. 

For more information  including  colours, pot sizes and prices please use the catalogue order form.


Once again the season is upon us. We have been busy updating our stock and increasing our range of varieties. All items are grown in rigid black plastic pots. We use a high grade, well know compost containing grit, slow release fertiliser and wetting agent. A regular spraying programme is operated in conjunction with biological control. Our family business aims to provide you with good quality nursery stock at sensible prices. We supply mainly garden centres plus landscapers, public authorities and the trade. A wide range of varieties is usually available AYR but late spring will find our stocks of saleable size plants depleted. We can reserve items for you. New stock is available from this date but bear in mind that some are “containerised” e.g. some trees and 1+1 deciduous shrubs. Other species may be autumn potted, rooted but not the usual size. Also summer flowering varieties are pruned during January & February. Pot sizes may alter to those listed. We also gently trim elongated growth during growing season to ensure you receive nice bushy plants.
