Hi Graeme
Lepus came from Aberconwy. I do love the allionii primulas but struggle to grow them unfortunately - even in well ventilated alpine house as soon as they get to a decent size a little bit of rot sets in. Just have to enjoy them as small plants!

Thanks Sue - I will hopefully be able to get one at Loughborough in a couple of weeks time

It can be very frustrating when you get a decent sized plant and you then loose half of it - however this time of year it is great to see the small ones flower

This picture is from last June, Primula sieboldii 'Manakoora' seed  from Barnhaven. Most of the plants were white but this pale blue is really pretty and my favourite of them all.

... and to end.

Primula 'Maria Talbot'
P. 'Lindum Wedgewood'
There is a tale about the last one. It was given to me by David Hatchett and his wife Julie. David is well into his 80's now but still hale and hearty. One of his posts, prior to his retirement,  was as Head Gardener at Cornwell Manor in the Cotswolds and indeed David wrote a book called Country House Garden, about a year in his work in the garden there (published by David and Charles 1983) and it's a very good read and you can pick it up very cheaply. During this time his wife, Julie,  worked as a propagator for the famous Joe Elliott at the equally famous Broadwell Nursery. The plant was a self-sown seedling in one of Joe Elliott's plunges. So, for me, it has the label 'Primula JE ss sdlng.
