Quercus Garden Plants

We are a Scottish nursery growing and selling a wide range of plants. These include old favourites and many unusual varieties of herbaceous perennials, grasses, trees, shrubs and plants for shade.

Because we grow at 850 feet above sea level our plants are tough and well acclimatised to Scottish growing conditions. The majority of them are propagated and grown on site for at least a season so are fully hardy and tough enough to cope with our Scottish growing conditions.

The nursery is situated at Whitmuir Farm on the A701 just south of Leadburn.  We are one of an exciting group of businesses here, including the award-winning organic farm shop and restaurant and Dancing Light Art Gallery.

Spend an afternoon wandering around the nursery and gardens, see the animals and wildlife ponds on one of the farm trails, shop in the art gallery and enjoy good food in the organic restaurant and farm shop.
