Our nursery, Galloway Plants, is located adjacent to Claymoddie Garden. All our plants are propagated from the Garden with very few exceptions. We have as wide a range as we can produce and you will see there is a good choice of favourites as well as more unusual items, in particular a good collection of hydrangeas and camellias, also several southern hemisphere trees and shrubs, all of which thrive in the Garden.
You are very welcome to take as long as you like to select plants which you like the look of and which will work for your particular climate and soil conditions. Please ask us if you need information about the plants.
Claymoddie Garden is the “shop window” for our stock, but if you are unable to visit us we will be pleased, whatever time of year, to discuss your requirements with you by email or on the telephone. We will send your plants by courier (minimum orders £50, plus post and packing). Cost of P&P varies depending on the size of the plants and their containers. If leaving a message on the answer-phone, please be sure to speak very clearly, leaving name and number.
Many of our plants are raised in air-pots which produce healthy, vigorous results. There are no spiralling roots as can often occur in conventional pots, and therefore there is minimal check when planting out – the root-ball in an air-pot is very fibrous and the roots point outward, and the plants are therefore ready to establish strongly. Air-pots are recycled in the nursery and therefore you would receive plants raised in this way removed from their pots and ready for planting, even if temporarily, until you decide exactly where you wish to position them in your garden.
