Nursery update

Nursery update

On this page we will provide nursery updates, regarding propagation and stock levels.

We are not trying to produce a 'good read' here just short factual information!

Plant stock

As we produce all our plants, naturally stock levels will vary throughout the year. Plants are most abundant at the end of the growing season (September) and least abundant from early summer onwards. This is because we use the seasons to the advantage of plant production. Seed raised stock is sown in February and grown for a whole season before becoming available; so you receive a good sized plant which will flower the following spring, early summer. (we refer to this as 'flowering sized plants')

Currently (mid November 2017) stock levels are good. We have enjoyed a very good growing season and the plants are looking fantastic.

You shoud not be put off from buying primulas and auriculas because we are heading towards winter. They can still be potted or planted while temperatures are above 5 celsius. Top growth is stopped but root systems do develop slowly during the winter. Plants potted or planted during the winter will get off to the earliest start come springtime.

If you are new to primulas and auriculas I recommend our collection; special offers / collections
