250 years of growing experience

When Ben Reid set out to supply Aberdeenshire farmers with quickthorn hedging back in the 18th century, he couldn’t have imagined how well his enterprising business would grow.

From modest beginnings, four generations of our family have adapted and diversified our business to create the dynamic, modern nursery and garden centre you find today.

Now in the capable hands of Simon Fraser and his team, and with 250 years of local experience behind us, we believe Ben Reid offers something special and a wee bit more interesting than the average garden centre.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener looking for inspiration, or a keen novice needing a bit of friendly, expert advice, come and see us soon – we’d be delighted to meet you, and show you what a real garden centre and nursery has to offer.
