J MITCHELL & CO YOUR 1ST STOP FOR GARDEN MACHINERY J Mitchell & Co has been in business at Kinrossie Smiddy for 36yrs this year. My Dad and Mum bought the company as a going concern from the famous Jack Redford and his wife in 1982, this was then run as a blacksmith’s shop. Jack, who shoed horses and was a professional at wrought iron work, taught me many skills on the forge and the anvil. This would have been 25 years ago.




I, John then decided to diversify into garden machinery. We have many dealerships which we have managed to acquire over the years. We also hire a range of hand held and hand operated equipment and we are also expanding our hire fleet to walk behind power units with various attachments from BCS, which has a really good range of ground care equipment. We also hire a range of hand held and hand operated equipment ie. Turf cutters, stump grinders, hedge cutters – long or short etc etc.

Welcome to Glendoick Garden Centre

Glendoick Garden Centre is a multi-award-winning third-generation family business, run today by Kenneth and Jane Cox. Glendoick began as a Rhododendron Nursery in 1953 founded by Ken’s grandfather, Euan and father, Peter Cox. The Garden Centre opened in 1973 and has grown over the decades, adding a café in 1993, a food hall in 2003 and more recent expansions in 2011 and 2018.

Glendoick is Scotland's centre for gardening and plant expertise. And, over the years, we have become much more than a garden centre with gift, home, ladies’ and gents’ clothing, books, pet care, toys, cards and stationery, jewellery, pamper and Christmas departments, an award-winning café and soft and outdoor play areas. Winner of Best Garden Centre in the UK in 2009 & 2013

Glendoick is world famous for its Rhododendrons and Azaleas, but we also have a reputation for the quality of our plants, specifically grown and chosen for Scottish conditions. As world-leading specialists, Peter and Kenneth Cox have written 20 books on Rhododendrons, plant hunting and Scottish gardening, raised over 50 new hybrid Rhododendrons and Azaleas and introduced many species to the UK from their plant-hunting expeditions.

Open 7 days, 9am to 5pm in the Winter (Sunday 10am to 5pm) & 9am to 5.30pm in the Summer.

Scottish Plants, plant miles and local growers

Many garden centres today buy their plants from Holland. Glendoick is determined to sell customers Scottish plants whenever they are available. Some of the many examples of Glendoick's Scottish-grown plants include: the UK's largest selection of Rhododendrons and Azaleas grown on site at Glendoick; shrubs and perennials from Peter Milne Wholesale Nurseries, Glendoick; bedding plants from Gary Young, less than 3 miles from Glendoick; Meconopsis from Inverary, Argyll; Alpines and perennials from Highland Lilliums, near Inverness; Heathers from local growers; Poinsettias from Pentland near Edinburgh; Christmas trees from Auchterhouse by Dundee. If we go south of the border, we use suppliers in the North of England: trees and shrubs from Yorkshire, bedding, herbs and vegetable plants from Cumbria. This not only guarantees freshness but also means plants will be suited to local Scottish conditions. To help you choose the best plants, Kenneth Cox has published a FREE guide - 100 Best Plants for Scotland which you can pick up here at Glendoick. Kenneth Cox is Scotland’s best-selling gardening author, writing books on plants, gardens, fruit and vegetables  for Scotland, all available to purchase in store or on-line. Advice Sheets on choosing plants, soils,  rabbits & deer management and many more topics are also available to pick up in store.

The Glendoick Café

Sourcing only the very best in local produce, our award-winning café has become a firm favourite on the Tayside foodie scene. With suppliers from nearby Perthshire, Dundee, Angus and Fife, we offer a true flavour of Scotland. We serve soups, sandwiches, home-baking and other lunchtime favourites. Drop in for coffee and a home-made scone or try one of our daily hot specials for a more filling option. The newly extended café now has a dedicated afternoon tea area overlooking the beautiful display garden and woodland walk areas. Served on beautiful china, customers can enjoy finger sandwiches, home-made sausage rolls, a mini Glendoick fruit scone served with Chantilly cream and jam and a selection of home-made petit fours. Styled in a fun, shabby-chic vibe with lots of colour and fabulously unique upcycled chandeliers, the Afternoon Tea Lounge is fast becoming a favourite amongst our Glendoick regulars.

Celebrating 100 years of Glendoick Gardens

This year Glendoick is celebrating 100 years since Euan Cox returned from plant hunting in Burma with the first seeds to be planted in the Gardens. How it all began … A chance meeting at a tea party in London in 1918 changed the course of Euan’s life. Reginald Farrer was already one of the most famous garden writers and plant hunters of his day. Farrer asked Euan to accompany him to upper Burma on a plant collecting expedition in 1919. This was the diversion Euan needed to excuse himself from the family jute business. His decision to join Farrer was to have far-reaching consequences, leading to the Cox family’s 90+ year involvement with Rhododendrons and plant collecting.

The Glendoick Garden and woodland walks can be explored in April & May 10am - 4pm everyday.

Glendoick 10 acre Woodland Gardens

Situated 1/2 mile behind the Glendoick Garden Centre on the southern slopes of the Sidlaw Hills, the gardens are a haven of colour in April and May. You can see one of the finest collections of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, Primula, Meconopsis, Kalmia and Sorbus in our woodland garden. Many of the Rhododendron and Azalea species and hybrids have been introduced from the wild or bred by the Cox family and the gardens boast a huge range of plants from as far afield as Chile, Tasmania and Tibet. Open 1st April to 31st May 7 days 10am – 4pm Entrance: £5 per adult   (Donation made to Scotland's Garden Scheme) School age children: Free

Glendoick Play Launched in June 2017 and situated just behind the cafe in our beautiful grounds, our fantastic outdoor playpark makes it even easier for families to enjoy a day out in the fresh air. Our playpark was carefully designed to ensure children of all ages and abilities can enjoy themselves. And on Thursdays, we give priority to children with Additional Support Needs and their families. If it rains, our new indoor soft play area, opened in March 2018, is suitable for babies and children up to 8 years old. Inside the centre we have a wide selection of Children's toys, books and games from brands like Jelly Cat, Lego, Orange Tree and more! Glendoick Play is supported by Rural Perth & Kinross LEADER programme 2014-2020: The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe Investing in Rural Areas.

So much more than a Garden Centre Plants are important to us: they are our roots and heritage, and over the years, we are proud to have added a thriving café, play areas for the children, gifts galore, not to mention the fantastic food hall and we hope to provide something of interest to everyone who visits us. You can purchase Glendoick gift vouchers to spend throughout the garden centre or HTA vouchers, redeemable throughout centres in the UK. We offer a plant gift wrap service, carry to car service and local delivery. Our hardy plants are guaranteed for two years (see website for full T’s & C’s) and most importantly of all, we offer free expert knowledge so that you can buy with confidence.
