Wonderful nursery, expanding and using space not only for selling plants but for running courses for the community.
They do bulk spuds onions and garlic loose,  but a large range of seeds ONLY from bristish suppliers,  NOT companies owned by non uk.  I dont have a really big issue with buying from non uk however, would rather support the UK businesses if given the option.

Dove Cottage Nursery, Shibden, Halifax, for hardy perrenial plants

They have a beautiful show garden of the perrenials on sale some of which they have hybridised themselves.

They didn't sell veg supplies when I last visited but for general plants they have a wonderful choice selection.

I second this nursery as well; very good for all those loose seeds/sets, fruit bushes/canes and different varieties of garlic albeit then in bags of three.  Always very helpful and they remember you and happy to have "a chat"!

Quite agree Bombers, I use it too. Also worth a try is Pipers on the A5. It's on the left just after Gailey island. (up the A449 to Gailey, right onto the A5)

Ive got to disagree with you there SB, I find them really expensive on basically everything even by weight, the bird seed prices made me eyes pop out of my head, and the pots Ive bought from there havent been frost hardy despite advertising to the contrary (to the tune of 35 for one of them!)
On the plus side they do a good line in new plant varities (especially house plants) and their hand made garden furniture is lovely, and I havent been since last June so hopefully its better this year (IMO of course)

My Local Suppliers
Springwood Nursery and Garden Centre
Springwood Rd
Pike Hill
Burnley
Lancs

Just been extended, but havent delved into it yet ( I cant spend any more money!)...especially great for climbers, fruit trees and shrubs, conifers and pond plants

Sorry hun!

Anybody know of any independent nurseries in the Aberdeen area?  (General ones - I know there's a Rose one). 

I'd much sooner give my business to someone local, rather than a big chain  :tongue2:

My local now has winter onion sets in - 5 varieties this year:

Silver Moon
Electric
Radar
Shakespeare
Senshyu

200 sets cost me 3.28

By comparison, 50 from T & M would cost you more than this - with postage on top.

I think I called at this one earlier this year and indeed I could not believe how many diff types of spud they had and you could pick out the ones you wanted and buy as few or as many as you liked.
