James Mcintyre & Sons
Based in Perthshire, Eastern Scotland, James Mcintyre & Sons have over 60 years experience producing soft fruit plants. Known for growing the absolute highest quality plants, they produce more than a million raspberry canes each year from 60 acres of ground located in the hills of Strathmore Valley.
The rich soil and East Perthshire climate combine to create the perfect growing conditions for soft fruit. Add 60 years of knowledge and a passion for quality and you can be sure that when you buy a James Mcintyre soft fruit plant, you are buying the best.
We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
