About Us

Scottish bamboo is a small family run mail order plant nursery, established in 2008, located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Run by Kerri and her husband Chris, their love of bamboo plants started out as a hobby in 2001 when they purchased a house in the country with a very large garden and some spare land alongside. When Chris started landscaping the garden he was determined to create an exotic feel and invested in some bamboo plants for their lush tropical look and ability to withstand the extremely harsh frosts experienced in this area of the UK. Watching them grow was fascinating and soon the collection in our own garden grew from 2 varieites to well over 30 different varieties, still adding to them yet!

The hobby then turned into a family business when Scottish Bamboo was formed in 2008 when a gap in the market was identified to provide different varieties of hardy bamboo by mail order all over the UK (aside from the handful of varieties usually available in mainstream garden centres and nurseries). Scottish Bamboo now serve bamboo lovers nationwide by mail order using careful packaging and a courier service to deliver as far north as Wick and as far south as Cornwall.

Scottish Bamboo now stock over 50 different varieties of bamboo plants (the range is growing every year). All the plants we sell are carefully selected for our climate and have a proven track record of surviving temperatures comparable to North East Scotland and even lower.

The main aim of Scottish Bamboo is to provide great quality and value plants by mail order, together with knowledge and expertise (if we don't know the answer to any question you throw at us we'll make sure and find out) and last but certainly not least, to provide second to none, friendly and efficient customer service (good old fashioned Scottish customer service!).

In 2018 Scottish Bamboo began supplying real fresh Christmas trees locally grown on their doorstep in Aberdeenshire. Supplying only the best quality, top grade Nordmann Fir trees chosen for their almost no needle drop. Following on from the success with the Christmas trees, 'The Cabin @Scottish Bamboo' was started in 2020. The Cabin was born from Kerri's love of her home as much as her garden and offers a range of accessories for both the home and garden. 'The Cabin' is exactly how it sounds, a wee wooden cabin at the plant nursery, full of seasonal accessories for the home and garden. The range started with festive accessories alongside the real Christmas trees but is slowly expanding to bring customers, old and new, a fresh and exciting range of products.


Kerri runs the sales and customer service side of the business.
