Hello my name is Cathy and I’d like to welcome you to my new website where I shall be selling my hardy Scottish grown plants online as well as at my usual Markets, Flower Shows and events throughout the Spring to Autumn season. This site has been a long time coming and I apologise to my frequent visitors to the markets and shows for the delay in setting up! As many of my regular customers know I don’t sell from home as I basically live in the middle of nowhere down two private dirt tracks! My normal selling season for markets is April to September when the plants are looking at their best, but with mail order I am hoping to extend the season from March to November- weather permitting out here! I have posted some photos in the Gallery to give you some idea of the extreme conditions we can have out here most years. I’m basically only 10 miles from Perth, but it seems a world away in the winter months!
How C C Plants are grown
I grow mainly hardy herbaceous perennials, shrubs and grasses – if they grow out here, I think you’ll find they’ll grow practically anywhere! A lot of plants are grown from seed, which I still find fascinating, and I’m always on the lookout for new and unusual plants which I will test here in my own garden to make sure they are hardy enough to survive! The rest are done from splitting and cuttings, but plants with propagating rights must be bought in, and I have a few reliable sources for cutting/plug material – I never buy in ready plants for resale! Therefore plugs etc are still grown here for at least 1 to 2 years before sale to ensure they’ve acclimatised! It’s nearly 20 years since I started growing and selling plants, initially at a boot sale in, then local events and Farmers Markets. Keep checking out the events page on a monthly basis, as I do Gardening Scotland, Royal Highland Show, Scone Game Fair, Dundee Flower Show etc, throughout the year. I usually have a huge range of plants at these shows as I take trolley loads with me, but if you would like to collect specific plants at the show, please email and let me know in advance and I shall bring it for you – even if there’s a plant you’re looking for and it’s not on the list, please ask – not every plant is detailed there! If you are looking for a particular plant on the site, please use the search box on the right of the top menu bar. Looking forward to hearing from old and new customers alike.
