John Train & Son

John Train & Sons is one of Ayrshire’s only remaining retail nurseries. A family run business for over 60 years. Trains has built a reputation for offering customers top quality plants at reasonable prices. As you would expect, we have one of the most comprehensive ranges of fresh, healthy plants cared for by professional horticulturists. We specialise in roses, bedding plants, hanging baskets and much more. The majority of our plants are grown here on our nursery, meaning there are fewer plant miles involved and customers should be assured that they can buy plants with confidence at Trains.

In summer our wonderful selection of innovative hanging baskets and filled planters offer beautiful flowering displays ‘ready made’ for your garden. December our Christmas Fayre provides an unrivalled choice in basket arrangements, home grown poinsettias, fresh made holly wreaths and real Christmas trees.

At Trains we delight in welcoming old and new customers to our nursery which is situated in a picturesque country location within Ayrshire. The nursery is laid out to create ideal conditions for raising young plants and where you can browse around our vast range of trees, shrubs, fruit bushes, roses and seasonal flowering bedding plants.

Our team of friendly nursery staff, who between them have a sound knowledge of growing and maintaining plants, are always available to help with general enquiries or plant advice to assist you in making your garden look beautiful. Their helpful gardening tips will give you inspiration for your garden and borders. Our aim is to offer excellent levels of service with complete customer satisfaction. A visit is a rewarding experience for any gardener all the year round.



Remember, at Trains, "plants come first and customers come back again."
