Barnhaven’s birthday


Barnhaven Primroses, those fabulous hardy beauties that span the generations and continents, are 80 years old this year and to mark the event, they are offering a great saving this month only. If you order in January you get a free packet for order and some are on offer too. Now Barnhaven seeds are not the cheapest but cheap primrose and polyanthus seed is a terrible investment and Barnhavens are simply the most beautiful and charming primulas you can grow. My seeds, bought at full price, were worth every cent and are giving me lots of pleasure even with the anticipation of seeing the first flowers open. Right now they are sending up some buds.

Spring is almost here – to get a glimpse of some of the prettiest spring flowers tale a look at their website.
