What a difference a year or two make - before and after, June 2015 - 2019

A lovely review from Trip advisor

“Tough plants for tough gardeners.”

Whitmuir is a destination visit. There is much to do and enjoy in lovely surroundings - and not at all far from Edinburgh. For gardeners, there is a really wonderful little garden centre called Quercus. The owners are genuinely enthusiastic and very well informed. These plants were born and bred in Scotland, nurtured to survive in our hostile Scottish climate. Everything I have bought here has thrived - I cannot say that about any other garden centre I have visited locally. Well worth a visit!

Group Bookings and Tours

Group bookings & tours are very welcome, and we ask that you email to book in advance so we can give you our full attention for your visit. Gardening groups, clubs, the rural, horticultural societies or any group with an interest in plants and gardens are very welcome.

We are now taking 2024 group bookings for our popular Garden and nursery tour of Quercus Garden Plants.

The guided tour lasts about 45 minutes – 1hr and includes the story of how the gardens and nursery were were created with detailed information about many of the plants on display. You will have plenty opportunity to ask questions about the nursery and gardens, plants or indeed any garden and plant advice. After the tour you will be able to browse the nursery sales area and stock beds where you will find a great selection of familiar and more unusual plants propagated here in the nursery.
