Scotplants Direct History
Hedgehogs Nursery had its beginning in 1984 when Robert Kean purchased land from the then Glenrothes Corporation in Glenrothes Scotland. He was mainly involved in all aspects of hard and soft landscape projects from design to construction. Robert is a fully qualified Landscape Architect having attended University and Edinburgh Botanic Gardens for formal training. After graduating in 1974 he was employed by the then Glenrothes Corporation and was involved in the landscape and design of the 'new town' in Glenrothes.
In 1978 he took his skills to the Middle East where he was project manager for landscape design projects of airports. When he returned to Glenrothes, Scotland in 1994 he began his own company Hedgehogs Nursery and Garden Design as well as growing his own plant material to supply the landscape business.
Hedgehogs Garden Centre was created in 2004 mainly to provide plants to the local area that were grown in our nursery. Since then there has been a slow move toward creating a more diverse business hat has now evolved into the production of native hedging plants as well as the supply of garden sundries which are despatched UK nationwide and even abroad.
Today the business has expanded production and supply a large range of hedging plants (bareroot and pot grown) as well as garden sundries. During our bareroot season which runs from late October until Mid March, the hedging plants are lifted from our fields on order and brought to our nursery, placed in special holding fields and then despatched throughout the UK and abroad.
Due to the ever increasing demand for fruit we have introduced a new range of fruit, soft and top, from pot grown to bareroot. We especially have invested in super fruits such as blueberries which have become a very popular berry for us, and we now offer blueberries from 2 years old up to about 4 years old. Our berries are grown in mesh tunnels and are offered year round. We are always looking for new and refreshing plants to grow especially since the gardening world is changing so fast.
Our online shop now offers a wide range of plant material from our Scottish nursery as well as our line of fruit, including our blueberries and recently due to our growth Robert's son Liam has joined the company to develop further the Internet side of the business and the general management of the company. We also have 3 full time staff and up to 5 partime staff during our peak seasons.
Hedgehogs Nursery is located off the B921 on Crompton Road, Southfield Industrial Estate, Glenrothes Fife, Scotland. You can call us on 01592 772274 or come in for a visit.
