About the Nursery

We are based in the small village of Rumbling Bridge near Kinross, a somewhat micro-climate at high altitude for growing our unique collections of rare alpines and woodland plants.

The business has been run for over fourteen years on the site of an old Victorian nursery, which supplied the old Briglands estate in which it is located, with fruit, vegetables and other produce. When we took over the site it was in a state of great disrepair, with a huge Victorian wrought iron and wooden glasshouse which had sadly drifted beyond repair. The site was overgrown with waist height grass and unfortunately placed trees. Now, a fully fledged nursery, weed free, with three polytunnels and complementary stock gardens.

‘Rumbling Bridge’

We’ve added a feature page on our superior show pubescens type Primula – Primula x pubescens ‘Rumbling Bridge’.

The page explains the background and naming of the plant.
