Long awaited Cafe construction now underway!

Leader Cafe + Pathways

Ashbrook Nursery is a family run nursery on the outskirts of Arbroath opposite the Condor Marine base.


We started as a wholesale nursery growing cut flowers and bedding plants for local shops and garden centres, but over the last few years we have been developing our own retail outlet and now offer for sale a huge variety of bedding and patio plants, alpine and herbaceous perennials which we grow ourselves. We also stock a good range of trees, shrubs, roses and conifers.


Our aim is to always stock a good selection of varieties across the whole range of garden plants. We have developed a reputation for producing quality filled baskets and planters using a wide range of alpines, grasses and perennials as well as the more traditional patio and bedding plants.


We grow our plants in an environmentally friendly way,  which produces plants suited to Scottish growing conditions


As we grow much of our own plant material we can claim to have a much lower 'carbon footprint' than most garden centres. One articulated lorry delivery carrying compost, seeds & plugplants, pots & trays allows us to produce plants that would take at least ten lorries to deliver to us fully grown. Also we grow our plants 'hard' - with minimal heat - thereby saving more energy and producing hardy plants that are well able to withstand the rigours of the Scottish climate once planted in your garden.


Help and advice is always on hand


We have an enthusiastic and horticulturally qualified staff who just love their plants and are always willing to impart their enthusiasm and offer advice to our customers. There is always a good selection of planted containers on display in the shop to give inspiration to those wishing to fill their own planters - or to buy ready planted! We also offer a container filling service and are happy to plant up according to your instructions - or just as we choose - we have such a variety of plant material that we can tailor the planting to suit most budgets.


If a customer has a special request for a plant which we do not stock we will do our best to source it - or even try to grow it if you are prepared to wait!


Seasonal plants and offers

Throughout the year we pick a Genus that is looking good, display our selection of varieties along with cultural advice and a special offer price.


Over the summer months we have our famous 'posies' for sale - cut flowers grown at Ashbrook comprising pinks (with a fragrance!), statice, cornflower, scabious, sunflowers, chrysanths, matricaria and many other varieties that change as the season progresses. For Christmas we produce holly wreaths, table centres and festive silk flower arrangements and stock a good range of Christmas trees.
