Garden Plant Centre

About Us

Donald Hutchison started developing Kinlochlaich Garden Plant Centre in 1975, initially as a market garden, and it is now run by his daughter, Fiona Hutchison. It has evolved to become one of the leading Garden Plant Centres in Scotland specialising in just plants, plants, plants!

We have an extensive range of hardy plants, to suit many conditions, and are always trialling something different, interesting or unusual.

Our experienced and friendly staff can give you advice, as well as informative help on habit, growth and flowering time. We can often show you a specimen growing within the gardens. Our advice stems from experience, and trial and error!

We also have a good selection of wood fired frost resistant Planters.

Well known author and journalist Peter Irvine describes our gardens thus: “At Kinlochlaich , Port Appin, the gardens in which the nursery is set are an inspiration. This delightful place is one of the attractions of the west Highlands…Here is where to load a car with Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias and all the things you’ve seen growing so spectacularly in this mild moderate climate.
