Company Information


Our Primula Sieboldii growing in April 2012Penny’s Primulas is a trading name for Staddon Farm Nurseries. The nursery is a small family run business, established in 1996. Penny and Melvyn will be your key contacts for processing your orders. In October 2013 we were awarded National Collection Holder status for Primula sieboldii Japanese cvs. At present this is the only recognised collection of Primula sieboldii in the UK.


Although our North Devon nursery is not generally open to the public, we will be opening the nursery on 25th and 26th April this year (2015). If you would like more information please contact us by email - - and we can supply you with more information. In addition, we welcome Gardening Club visits, please use the above email address for further details.


In 2013 we launched this website in conjunction with being able to offer a mail order service for the Asiatic Primulas, including Primula sieboldii. We will still continue to sell these plants at RHS shows, including Cardiff, Malvern Spring and BBC Gardeners's World Live, where you will find us in the RHS marquees.


Our website is in its infancy, so we are currently focussing on our collection of primulas.  We also grow a range of other shade and damp loving plants, and a range of good quality perennials for many garden conditions. We will try to expand our range of plants available by mail order over the next few seasons. Our website will be regularly updated, so please revisit often for the most current availability lists.  Our website was last updated in January 2015.
