Long awaited Cafe construction now underway!
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.
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.
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.
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.
