Specialist Nursery in Dumfries and Galloway

We specialise in choice and unusual alpines and perennials and offer a limited selection of shrubs.

Tinnisburn Plants is a small, family run nursery situated 600ft above sea level in beautiful Dumfries and Galloway.  While the nursery business is new we have a lifelong passion for plants and have been developing our 1.5 acre garden for 25 years.  Being plantaholics means that there is a bit of everything – rock garden, bog garden, woodland garden, herbaceous border, rose garden, shrubberies, prairie style planting and a hot, dry border. 

The majority of the plants that we offer for sale have been propagated by us from the diverse mix of plants in our garden.  Our nursery and garden is in an elevated position, and at times very wet and very cold (-20C).  The plants that grow here have to be tough to cope with the conditions and it is with confidence that we can say that if plants survive with us they will cope well in most other gardens. 

We’re constantly sourcing new gems to add to our collection, testing them out in our garden first before deciding whether or not to propagate them.

You'll find us selling our stock at national gardening shows, fairs and farmer's markets. You can also buy from us via our mail order Plant Catalogue and Seed Catalogue using the Plant Order Form and Seed Order Form - please contact us for our current stock and prices.

If you have any problems accessing the Order forms please email us and we'll send you a copy. Likewise if you are interested in knowing more about what we do or you're looking for particular plant, please email us headgardener@tinnisburn.co.uk

We are a member of the HEA (HorticulturalExhibitors Association).
