Field House Nursery

Val WoolleyDoug Lochhead

We were very honoured when Val Woolley of Field House Nursery approached us in 2016 to find out whether we would be interested in taking over part of her huge collection when she retired. Field House Nursery was the UK holder of the National Collection of Show and Alpine Auriculas and they also had a very large and well known collection of P. allionii and European Primula Hybrids. Very much involved in the show and plant fair scene in the UK, they also enjoyed a well-deserved international reputation for their fabulous collection.

Val Woolley was also the founder of the East Midlands National Auricula and Primula Society group. After the death of her business partner Doug Lochhead in 2007, her husband Jack helped run the nursery until 2012, when he also sadly passed away. Despite the help of her friend Bob Taylor, with failing health, she reluctantly decided it was time to retire.Val had been growing primulas for over 30 years and wonderfully it all started with a few packets of Barnhaven seeds, sent from the nursery which was then in Cumbria! It felt fitting for everyone that her beloved collection should be passed on to the nursery that inspired her to grow her first primroses.

We are currently still sorting through the collection, but will be adding the plants to this section as they become available.
