Priorities for our website update We have many reasons for maintaining our website. The main ones are: to build a following for our on-line sales business to show off our national collection of Primula sieboldii to showcase our other key collections of garden-worthy Epimediums and ferns to provide good quality photographs of our plants Selling […]
It can be difficult to remember that this season started with hard late snows and bitter winds in March. The wind caused much damage to our emerging plants; and our exhibit at RHS Cardiff in April was short on Primula sieboldii and Epimedium. Our displays at both Malvern and Chelsea narrowly missed gold, but the […]
We have just received our order of special plants from Japan. This includes 15 new Primula sieboldii, including 11 doubles. Can’t wait to see them flower. There is also a new Epimedium and (I have no idea how these slipped in) an Asarum, an Arisaema and a Trillium. Anyone would think we run a nursery […]
2018 sees another guest page added to the Penny’s Primulas website. Not only does the website include our National Collection of Primula sieboldii it now hosts both Epimediums and a modest collection of Ferns. Both of the latter plant groups are regularly used as part of our Primula sieboldii displays at the RHS shows at Cardiff, Malvern and Chelsea.

We are currently updating other areas of our web-site; and hope to introduce our collection of young ferns for sale during January 2018. Note that we have re-introduced our introductory offer of 3 […]
We have had to close our on-line shop so that we can focus our work on getting our primula and epimedium collections re-planted for next year. We hope to re-open the shop by late autumn; and will advise existing customers by email of the availability for next year. If you want to be added to […]
Having promised ourselves not to take on many more Primula sieboldii cultivars we have just received an order for 47!!! The opportunity arose and could we say no?! Quite excited at this end. They probably won’t be available commercially for another couple of years but….. However, we are hoping to have a small selection of them […]
Spring at last at Staddon Farm Nurseries. Primula sieboldii are waking up and beginning to flower just in time for our exhibit at RHS Cardiff show (15th – 17th April). The featured Primula sieboldii was donated to us by Steve and Angela Lobley. It is proving to be an absolute stunner – ‘Koharu Biyori’. Sadly […]
