A bit about us...

Based in Aberdeen, we are an independent family-run business specialising in growing varieties guaranteed to thrive in our challenging North East climate.

With a solid reputation as one of Aberdeen’s best stocked garden plant nurseries, we have all the plants, skills, experience and a genuine passion to help you make the most of your garden. At Ben Reid Garden Centre we concentrate on what really matters – the best selection of plants, trees, shrubs, fruit bushes, seeds, bulbs, seasonal bedding and composts available in Aberdeen.

A Growing Business

Growing more than 60,000 plants onsite each year gives us the control we need to guarantee you get them in prime condition. With new stock also arriving every week from our trusted suppliers, you will quickly find Ben Reid Garden Centre is always worth a visit at any time of year.

When our founder, Ben Reid, set out to supply Aberdeenshire farmers with quickthorn hedging back in the 18th century, he could not have imagined how well his enterprising business would grow. From modest beginnings, four generations of our family have adapted and diversified our business to create the dynamic, modern nursery and garden centre you find today.

The firm is now in the capable hands of the fourth generation Simon Fraser and his sister, Katie Lindsay. With their dedicated team and over 250 years of local growing experience behind them, we believe Ben Reid offers something special and a wee bit more interesting than the average garden centre.

Whether you are a seasoned gardener looking for inspiration or a keen novice needing a bit of friendly, expert advice, come and see us soon. We would be delighted to meet you and show you what a traditional garden centre and nursery has to offer.
