About Us

At Tinnisburn Plants

Our business is founded on decades of experience in the nurture of plants and shrubs.

Helen Knowles, the owner of Tinnisburn Plants, has been growing and selling plants in the area for years.

We sell our stock at RHS shows and local sales and fairs in Northern England and Southern Scotland. Click here to see our current list of sale dates

Our nursery, set on a Scottish hillside, is now open to the public on limited days during the summer, as detailed on the Visiting Tinnisburn page.  Visitors to the nursery are always welcome, where a wider choice of plants is available. As we exhibit at several shows it’s best to phone or e-mail in advance to ensure that we will be at the nursery and not elsewhere in the country with the pick of the stock.

Our gardens cover about 1.5 acres and include a bit of everything; rockery, woodland garden, herbaceous border, shrubberies, pond and bog garden.  There is still a lot of work to do but a lot of progress has been made over the last few years and there is something of interest just about all year round.  Visitors are welcome to have a look around the gardens and Helen will do group tours by prior arrangement.
