Slack Top Nursery is one of the UK's top five specialist growers of Alpines.
It is a small nursery, but with a very extensive range of interesting alpine plants, perfect for traditional or contemporary containers, terraces, window boxes and other garden settings. We also offer expert advice on plants for all garden situations – from damp shade to full sun and all things inbetween!
All plants are grown here on the nursery, and we carefully select the varieties that do best in our sometimes ‘testing’ climate. Whether it be foliage or flower, compact form or hardiness, you can be sure of something a bit different that will do really well for you.
Situated at 900ft in the Pennines, the tough climate means tough plants that readily establish when planted out. We also make all our own compost, resulting in far stronger plants.
