COVID-19 Restricions The nursery is now open to the public again. We are limiting it to 3 groups of customers inside the nursery at once so everyone can move around fairly freely without getting too close. We are offering a zero-contact “Call & Collect” service and for those unable to get out and about we offer free weekly deliveries to homes in the local area (Gairloch Parish) with a minimum order of £25. Customers can choose from one of the ready made themed collections listed on our home page or construct their own by noting down plants on our Availability List on the next page  and giving us a ring (01445 781777 / 07468 250719). Being West Coasters we know how tough it is for young plants to live here and so we grow our hardy plants outside in the elements for as long as possible to ensure our plants go out the gate fully toughened-up and ready to face whatever the Highland climate can throw at them, unlike the lush, soft polytunnel-grown stock found in supermarkets and many garden centres that will so often turn up their toes after the first cold spell or gale. We have been doing this for a long time so have a good knowledge of what will and won’t grow in most conditions, so if you are unsure what to plant or can’t get your head around all the Latin names please ask, we’re here to help! Why not have a poke through our wide range of Gardening Information pages to help you get on the right track when selecting plants.
Intro How to search and filter availability list results
Use the searchable table HERE to browse through our current stock. Click on the thumbnail image of a plant to see a larger pop-up image. Click Here to see a key to the little symbols. Most plants also have a photo on our Flickr, click the logo to see this as well. Click Here for an excel spreadsheet of our availability list, or Click Here for a PDF. We’ve added a feature to our availability list that allows you to search the list for all the plants we have that match your desired criteria. Browse the list by specifying your areas of interest. You can specify plant name, plant type (alpine, climber, shrub, etc.), preferred aspect (grows in sun or shade) soil drainage, salt wind tolerance, the maximum height the plant grows to, the dominant flower colour and season of interest and for people not living on the mild wintered West Coast like ourselves you can specify how cold hardy it needs to be. e.g. If you are looking for suggestions for your sandy blue themed late herbaceous border that gets the sun for half the day in Aberdeen try: Category: Perennials, Aspect: Partial Shade, Soil: Well Drained, Flower Colour: Blue, Season of Interest: Late summer, Cold Hardiness: 8 and then click Submit. To see what geraniums we have suitable for rockeries try: Search: geranium, Category: Alpine (or Height: <30cm instead as “Alpine” and “Perennial” are quite arbitrary designations) and click Submit.
