My name is Innes Hogg and my wife, Nicola, and I have been in business growing and selling plants for over 35 years. I left school in 1979 to start work as an apprentice gardener, 'served my time', left to attend college then worked on alpine nurseries. For most of our professional lives we have grown alpine plants (including Sempervivum) from our nursery here in central Scotland, starting in 1987.
We started this online business in 2012 and this is now how we earn our living. In 2022 we gave up the alpine side of our business to concentrate on our Sempervivums. After a difficult year personally due to Covid and health issues we felt it was time to slow down. We work by ourselves (as we always have), we have no staff and everything we sell is propagated and grown by us. People often assume we are some large concern but we're just a husband and wife business, although we do have vast experience in producing plants to the highest standard. I also design and maintain this website - I like to think I'm a better grower than a web designer! Or photographer or a host of other jobs, but needs must and like any small business we make do with what we can.
