April 29, 2021

We are delighted to be open to the public again, you can visit us from Thursday to Sunday and we will be open on the May Bank Holiday Monday. 

After many months of having to keep our website closed and only opening for short periods, the website is finally remaining open to new orders but we are still very busy so do allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery. 

In May we move into the best time of year for the availability of Ferns, Grasses, Bamboos, Perennials and Water Plants and we are constantly restocking the website. 

Our Nursery is full of beautiful plants, inter county travel is opening up and our long awaited Cafe, The Coffee Bee is opening very soon for takeaway so May is a really good time to come and visit us!

Growing Primulas

Growing Primulas

Primulas are a joy in the spring garden, and some will continue through the summer and into early autumn. They are herbaceous perennials, much more refined than the bedding polyanthuses, and when in the conditions they like will come back for many years.

Native primulas are very easy-going, and lovely in wild gardens, woodlands and meadows. The Asiatic primulas are fussier, liking reliably damp, acid to neutral soil; they are good in bog gardens, or on stream or pond banks, and are brilliant for bringing rich colour to a shady area. There are other lovely primulas, too, good in borders, and all love a deep, humus-rich, reliably moist, even wet, usually acid to neutral soil – a treat for those whose soil lies heavy and wet, and who sigh when ‘well-drained soil’ pops up on the website. All the ones discussed below are fully or very hardy.
