    Attractive whorls of flowers in shades of pink to wine red appear over pretty, deeply crinkled leaves, which are scallop-edged with woolly backs. This plant is easy to grow in cool shade where it will thrive and increase over the years. ... Learn More



    Strong stems holding tiered whorls of deep red to mauve flowers arise from vigorous rosettes of tooth-edged leaves. A small proportion will be of the lovely shell-pink 'Bartley's Strain'. This lovely plant from China is one of the easiest of the taller ones to keep happy and will be long-lived in most gardens. It can be distinguished from other candelabra types by the fine powder on its stems, Hence the name "Pulverulenta" "pulverized" into fine powder. ... Learn More



    One-sided clusters of deepest, darkest ruby red are carried on strong stems above vigorous clumps of shiny, jagged-toothed leaves. This lovely plant comes from very high up, sometimes over 12,000 feet, in the mountains of Szechwan and Yunnan in China. ... Learn More



    Strong stems carry heavy heads of many large, fragrant, flared, yellow trumpets above dense rosettes of crinkled and toothed leaves. A relatively rare and distinct species, almost as large as the "Giant Himalayan Cowslip". ... Learn More

    An exciting and generous selection of dozens of different primula species and cultivars and also primrose seeds! Absolute pot luck! We have mixed together all of the seeds we have collected where we have doubt about its identity. All shapes, colours and sizes, but all primulas of some sort or other. And a big packetful. ...

    "Wild Devon Cowslip". Dense heads of pendent yellow flowers appear on this quintessential spring flower which is ideal for naturalising in borders or even in wild grass (its natural home). These are generously filled packets so you may sprinkle them where required, even on to a grassy bank or lawn. Germination is very slow! ... Learn More



    Unlike the normal cowslip, each blossom of these ancient and extremely rare plants has a second blossom growing from within the normal one, producing an intriguing doubling effect. These exquisite flowers were first produced in the 18th century, but sadly were effectively lost to cultivation. This is possibly the first offering, in recent times of seeds of these exceptionally rare and beautiful flowers. ... Learn More



    This is a significantly more robust and vigorous form of the common "cowslip", with strong stems of fragrant, deep yellow flowers in April to May, which are perfect for naturalising in rough, damp grassland, or on a sunny bank. The larger-than-normal flowers have attractive orange markings at the base of each petal, and protrude further out of the larger-than-normal green calyx. ... Learn More



    Beautiful, jagged-edged grey leaves are thickly dusted with farina, which also coats the flower stems, each carrying whorls of bright yellow flowers. This spectacular and rarely-encountered beauty can be grown in a dry, protected spot outdoors, but it truly does make an amazing spectacle indoors or in an alpine house, where it can stand considerable heat and drying, even on a hot window sill as in the illustration here. It can be very thirsty, but it rewards constant drinks, and occasional feeding with an endless display of fragrant flowers as it blooms on and off for much of the year apart from mid-winter! In the wild the Sphondylia section of primulas come from surprisingly hot places, like Saudia Arabia, Yemen, the Sinai peninsula and Ethiopia, where they inhabit shady, damp places and often grow on wet, north facing, limestone cliffs. Botanically, they are related to, and indeed the flowers bear some resemblance, to the beautiful, and much harder-to-grow Dionysia species. Old plants can grow to a very large size and reward being re-potted yearly. ... Learn More



    The "Red-Hot-Poker Primula" or "Chinese Pagoda primula" has long crinkly leaves, from which erupt dense spikes of violet blue flowers topped by a blood red cone of unopened buds. When in flower in the garden this is our best selling alpine primula and surely one of the most desirable. ... Learn More



    We have cross-bred many varieties of these popular, old-fashioned primroses, to offer a wide selection of vigorous plants bearing strong stems displaying umbels of flowers in all colours from browns and buffs to deepest crimson, and with all of them being attractively edged in either silver or gold. ...

    The true "Devon Primrose" collected from a bank on our nursery. Sheets of delicately perfumed, pale lemon yellow blossoms appear in sheets of colour in earliest spring (sometimes at Christmas in Devon!). ... Learn More



    High in the Himalayan mountains, up to 19,000 feet in fact, this incredibly tough, hardy, and exceptionally beautiful plant, opens it sweetly-perfumed pink-to-wine-coloured, flared, funnel-shaped flowers in early spring. These are borne in umbels on long slender stalks, above low clumps of shiny, bluish-green leaves. It does perfectly well at sea level though given some shade and moisture! ... Learn More



    This beautiful and very rare plant makes a tiny, prostrate rosette of rounded very hairy leaves with short stems bearing heads of flared, tubular, deep indigo-purple flowers. In the muscarioides section (along with the more commonly grown Primula viallii)and probably not in general cultivation, it comes from snow fields and rocky meadows in very high places (up to 4,600 m) in SW Sichuan, SE Tibet and Yunnan. Sorry, no picture until next year, we forgot to take some when it was in flower, so just the rosette at the moment! ... Learn More
