The Lindum series of Primula hybrids were raised by Martin and Dreena Thompson.

A fabulous plant.

Primula villosa cottia

Finally, a couple of species.

Primula scotica

I think this might have done well if we had managed to get it to a show.

Inspirational Jon, many thanks to David for letting you share with us. The passion and determination, never mind patience, required to do this work leaves me speechless. I hope eventually some of these will find their way into circulation so us lesser mortals can enjoy them without the years of hard work!

Thank you, Jon and David, for sharing this with us. I know there was great interest in the short piece in the International Rock Gardener about David, by Zdenek Zvolanek(http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2011May261306444476IRGMay2011.pdf ) and so I have posted details of this thread in the SRGC Forum areas both for the IRG and Primulas.

Thank you Maggi. I thought these plants might be of interest to your primula enthusiasts.
