If you love tending to your garden, finding the right plants can make your hobby all-the-more enjoyable. We stock a comprehensive range of plants all year round to suit all situations and conditions, many of these plants are grown at our own nursery. Whether you come prepared with a list or just want someone to advise you will be sure to find the right plant at Ashbrook. Our customers come from all over the North East of Scotland as they can be sure of finding 'something special'
Whether you want to surprise someone special or you want to fill your home with delightful scents, you can come to us for fragrant cut flowers. Everything is grown on site, which allows you to enjoy the freshness for longer.
Bedding & Patio
We grow all our own bedding and patio plants and have a good range available throughout the seasons. We do not treat our plants with hormonal growth regulators which many of the larger growers do ( this keeps plants compact giving them a longer shelf life), so when you plant Ashbrook plants in your garden they just 'take off'.
Alpines & Heathers
Alpines provide a range of foliage colour and texture over winter followed by great floral displays in spring. They are hardy plants for rockeries, raised beds, borders or planters.
Many will tolerate poor soil and evergreen spreading varieties are great for weed suppressing ground cover.
Alpines tend to flower in early spring, bringing colour to the garden before the summer bedding and herbaceous perennials come into flower.
Heathers provide interest in the garden all year round with both flower and foliage colour, and of course the bees just love them!.
When planting a heather garden be sure to choose varieties to give colour through the seasons, not just those looking bonny today.

We are particularly proud of the range of herbaceous perennials we grow at Ashbrook. Each year we like to try something new as well as the old favourites. Our beautiful plants have been used to great effect in award winning gardens at the Dundee Flower Show and Gardening Scotland.
