Slacktop Alpine Nursery

Slack Top Nurseries


One of the UK’s top 5 true specialist alpine plant nurseries, situated at 900ft in the Yorkshire Pennines for nearly 30 years.

The vast majority of plants are propagated on the nursery from seed or cutting, resulting in a unique and unusual range. All are extremely hardy – grown outside at 900ft in the Pennines – and have withstood prolonged temperatures of -19°C.

As customers say ‘if it’ll grow at Slack Top, it’ll grow anywhere’!

An extensive display garden is open to the public, with interesting planted troughs, rock and scree beds, a 100ft planted wall, woodland planting and ponds.
