Lewisias crevice

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

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.)

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.

We also sell handmade TROUGHS at the nursery - browse under 'A' above for our Alpine containers.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you have read all the Shopping section below before ordering.


We welcome mail order every day of the year - and normally aim to send all orders between 7-10 days of receipt of order and payment. Orders are dealt with in the order we receive them. 


(we only post out on Mondays or Tuesday).
