You wont find any plants grown in Scotland on sale at Homebase, B&Q or Dobbies. They buy them all in from many miles away and they are transported in large lorries from as far as Italy. Indeed you wont find many British Plants at the Garden Centre and DIY chains, as most of them are imported. Why does this matter? 'Plant Miles' matter. And plants grown in Scotland are in tune with the seasons: ready to be planted out in Scottish Conditions. Dobbies used to be independent and used to support Scottish horticulture. Since Tesco took over, things have changed. Many Scottish wholesale nurseries have gone bust because they cant sell into Dobbies and other chains of garden centres.
Glendoick follow the philosophy that we should sell Scottish Plants whenever they are available. Some of the many examples of Glendoick's Scottish grown plants include.
And if we have to go south of the border, we go for suppliers in the North: trees and shrubs from Yorkshire, bedding, herbs and vegetable plants from Cumbria.
