Lewisias crevice

Welcome to the Alpine Sweet Shop… midget gems as far as the eye can see!

Due to unprecedented demand we are only accepting orders for our alpine Collections at the present time. These can be found at the bottom of  the left column on this page. Please only order these. No self-selection possible sorry. Don't worry that you'll get second-rate plants - you will get a really lovely selection of our choices for your garden situation.


We have specialised only in alpines for over 30 years, and offer one of the widest ranges of unusual alpine plants in the UK - things that you definitely won't find at garden centres!

All our plants are propagated at our nursery from seed, cutting or division. Once rooted, everything is grown outside in (very!) fresh Pennine air and is fully hardy (apart from a few more tender plants that prefer some protection from the wet.) We also make our own loam compost (none of that multi-purpose rubbish for our little alpines). Most of our plants are supplied in 7cm or 6cm pots as they are grown to be lean and tough (not like the massively overfed4" potfuls from garden centres).

Because we grow everything ourselves, our plant list changes regularly. We sometimes only have small quantities available, and once they're gone, they're gone for the season in most cases, until we grow some more. So make sure to buy early! PLEASE NOTE: If a plant appears without the 'Add to list' button, then it will be available a bit later in the season.
