Primrose and Polyanthus advice.
Primroses and Polyanthus are a firm favourite for Autumn and Winter gardens due to their hardy nature. These plants like a shaded area rather than full sun and some of our collection offer early flowering that will last through the summer if given the right conditions. Here are a few tips in helping them to flower for longer and produce great healthy flowers
My third year in ordering these and what a display they made. Much admired by passers by and a dramatic splash of colour. Order already in for autumn thank you Brookside!

Looking forward to the splash of colour,
Thank you for taking the time to review. Great news to hear you are pleased with your purchase.
I found Brookside Nursery online whilst looking for larger quantities of plugs to grow on for my own garden. I ordered 2x trays of bedding (polyanthus crescendo and primula fruelo) each containing 350 plugs.I was amazed at being able to choose the delivery weeks ~ meant I was able to plan ahead much better and get ready for plants arriving, particularly handy in this sort of quantity.When the first tray of plants arrived they were of excellent quality, packed well and all arrived still safely in their modules. They were fresh, well watered and immaculate. Definitely 10/10It is not the norm for me to email and praise suppliers (who has the time!) but this was so exceptional that I did so and received a lovely reply from customer care.Obviously being a new customer, I was still not sure if the second part of the delivery would arrive in such brilliant quality but, earlier this week, it arrived and was equally as good if not better than the first..... is it allowed to give an 11/10?Can't wait for the new 2020 catalogue - this is now my favourite supplier and will be getting many more orders from me. Cannot recommend them highly enough
