 About Us

Company History

In 1958, John Train and his two sons Adam and Matthew started John Train & Sons.  It was, and still is, very much a family business since it first began as a market garden, growing over the years into a thriving plant nursery it is today. Adam and Matthew continued running the nursery until Matthew’s retirement in 2007. Currently Adam and his daughter Alison are at the helm of this expanding horticulture business.

As well as our retail business, we offer an extensive service to garden centres, local authorities and wholesale suppliers. Our plants and baskets can be admired locally around Ayr, Prestwick, Troon Town Centres and Ayr Racecourse as well as at Ayr Flower Show which we have supported over the last 50 years.
