Our Feedback

My last order arrived safely and the items were packed well and in good condition. That's why I'm ordering from you again. (Incidentaly the straw they were packaged smelt gorgeous and as that is organic that will also be used in the garden). Many thanks.

Utterly hardy these produce pretty yellow flowers with an orange yellow centre - mostly single but occasionally double, this is the ultimate cottage garden plant!

Sometimes known as common Primrose, English Primrose, Blue Primrose or Culver keys.

Flowering can start soon after Christmas and continue right through to May. Its not unusual to see the pretty flowers appear from melting snows - these really are tough!
