Hello! Welcome to Cairnsmore Nursery!

Heucheras, Heucherellas, Tiarellas and Primulas, including auriculas, are our nursery’s specialities!

We import brand new cultivars of Heucheras, Heucherellas and Tiarellas direct from the U.S.A. Primulas are a long-held passion for us, both garden and cold greenhouse varieties, including show auriculas.

Our range of bog primulas includes many beautiful colours and scents, and they are suited especially to conditions found in this area.

We opened Cairnsmore Nursery in March 2001, outside Castle Douglas in the beautiful area of Dumfries and Galloway. Our aim is to provide our customers with a range of hardy plants, including something a little bit different, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The nursery offers an eclectic collection of plants that we have selected to withstand the rigours of the local climate, including shrubs, herbaceous perennials, rhododendrons and azaleas.

Visitors will be able to see increasing numbers of these plants growing outdoors in our display garden, rabbits permitting. So, if you enjoy browsing, and chatting about plants and gardening, please call in to take a look. A visit to the nursery in April or May will be rewarded with a display of many of the cold greenhouse primulas in flower, and you will be able to appreciate the beauty of their many forms, colours and scents.

Planting beautiful plants in your garden will make your flower garden look beautiful and attractive. You can use these plants as the garden bed or for bordering your garden. Flower gardening is not an easy task and planting flowering plants in your garden will require patience and care. When you are planning to plant them, you need to follow all the appropriate gardening tips and take proper precautions.
