We grow many Primroses, modern and old varieties both doubles and singles. They have a very special charm. We offer some of the old varieties every year and then have to build up stocks again.

Anyone looking for a particular old primula is welcome to e-mail info@lochnessgarden.com or call 01463 861 232 to check availability. If you have old varieties that we don’t, and you would like to swap, do get in touch.

OLD DOUBLES
We have a gardening friend who lived on South Loch Ness and has supplied us with these fine old primroses for years. This year she moved to live in New Zealand. So let us hope we can keep them going in our garden. They are plants that have been grown in old gardens for years but became increasingly scarce as the last century progressed. Now they are truly rare. In the garden they are vigorous and resist virus far better than all the micro propagated plants we have grown over the years. They love dappled shade, such as woodland glades, but perform well in any spot that does not dry out.
