Plants Shoots and Leaves

A family run plant nursery based at Hartrigge, Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders

Please note that orders placed this week will be sent out from the 30th of May 2022



Welcome to Plants, Shoots and Leaves although we have a wide range of unusual and rare hardy as well as some more widely available garden worthy plants we specialise in Epimedium and Hardy Geraniums. Many of the plants we grow are attractive to wildlife especially bees and butterflies.

We have recently ventured into growing cut flowers in our walled garden

We also offer a garden design service.


About Us

Prior to Covid we sold most of our plants at flower shows where we have achieved the following awards: Silver Gilts at Harrogate Spring show with our display of epimedium, Silver Gilt at Gardening Scotland with our display of late flowering Epimedium and early flowering Hardy Geraniums, a silver merit at Gardener's World Live and Silver Gilt at RHS Hampton Court 2019 with our displays of Hardy Geranium.  

The nursery is open between April and October by appointment please phone first. We sometimes have special open days for groups.


We aim to grow most of our plants from seed or cuttings from our own stock plants. We use mainly peat free or locally produced compost for growing our plants on and use organic methods of pest and disease control. Testing new varieties in the nursery which is in a frost pocket with freezing temperatures often lingering for days.


Website current condition

Please bear with us we may not always have time to keep the website completely up to date. We don’t have pictures available for all of the plants as they may be young and haven’t flowered yet. Also not all the plants listed will always be available for a variety of reasons, they may have been potted on and are not ready to send or they may have become dormant to reappear the following season. However if you see a plant that’s not currently available in our online catalogue you can note your interest and we will let you know as soon as they are ready. We can also take reserved plants to the shows that we attend just email and let us know.
