A well-known Scottish nursery is  featured in Gardens Illustrated magazine  as the  Nursery  of the  Month. Matt Biggs, broadcaster  and  author and  SRGC supporter-  some  of  us  have  worked with Matt over  many  years,  writes about  Kevock Garden Plants  -

Kevock Nursery  was begun by  Stella Rankin, with  her husband, David,a former President of  SRGC and  has  developed  a  good  reputation for the  standard of  plants it  produces, and  the  number  of rare  plants, often grown from Stella and  David's seed collections.   The  nursery  gained  great publicity from the  number  of  winning  exhibits  it  has  staged at  the  like of  Chelsea, other  RHS Shows and  Gardening Scotland. Under the  ownership of  Elea Strang for  several years now, the winning habit  of  Kevock has  continued.  Their  team must  be  eagerly awaiting the re-introduction of flower  shows!
