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, where you  can spend an afternoon wandering around the nursery and gardens, see the  farm animals on one of the farm trails, shop in Dancing Light Art Gallery  and Gladstonebag Antiques and enjoy good food in the cafe and farm shop.

As well as selling plants we are developing gardens to inspire and  show you what can be grown in these  sometimes challenging conditions. We are happy to advise  and help you get the best from your garden.
