Don’t Be Afraid Of Big Leaves And Monster Plants

Amulree exotics garden design primrosePlants don’t just look pretty indoors or out – they also clean the air and add to the general well-being of any space they occupy.

Primrose have partnered with several nurseries to bring you a wide variety of plants ranging from everyday annuals and perennials to gorgeous exotics.

One of our nurseries – Amulree Exotics – is at this year’s Hampton Court Flower Show and their garden was featured on Monday night’s highlights episode on BBC1.

The thing I love about the tropical plants is just the effect that it gives you – the big leaves, the spiky leaves, it takes you to a different country and to a different time.

Planning the amulree gardenAmulree Exotics’ Simon Grindley together with garden designer Kevin Scales created a garden called ‘Don’t be afraid of big leaves and monster plants’ filled with exotic plants to showcase that even big-leaved exotic plants can be used in the smallest spaces.

There’s so many amazing plants out there that we weren’t growing here at the time so I felt it was my job to get out there and get ’em and bring ’em in.


Watch the Amulree nursery highlights on iPlayer.

2 tier

Over the last few weeks on EastEnders, Masood has been building our 2 tier classical stone fountain in his front garden for Zainab.

The fountain really looked great in the front garden of Albert Square, complementing the Victorian terrace behind. It’s a lovely piece and would really only take an hour or so to assemble, unlike his attempts to build it in several days.

soaps-eastenders-4581-5Unfortunately, the screenwriters used the fountain as a symbol of their relationship and, when the plot drove them apart, Masood attacked it with a hammer.

As you can imagine, we’re as heart-broken as he is. We’ve tried to contact Masood to help him out with some replacement pieces, but our letters to Albert Square keep getting returned as “unknown address”.

The Coldest Journey – with Warmawear™ by Primrose

the_coldest_journey_page_header

Tomorrow is the official start of The Coldest Journey and the SA Agulhas will depart London to arrive in Novolazarevskaya, Antarctica, around mid-January. The team, led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, will attempt to cross the Antarctic over a six month period and are estimated to be spending 273 days on ice with an average of 35km per day. Most of that time will be spent in complete darkness and with possible temperatures as low as -70°C!

In this time the team will have to be entirely self-sufficient as a rescue won’t be possible. Additionally they had to apply for a permit for a winter expedition in Antarctica which is the first time the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has granted one.

Crossing the Antarctic during winter is seen as one of the last great polar challenges. It was first crossed in 1958, but this will be the first time that a winter crossing is attempted.

We are proud that they are considering our Warmawear™ heated clothing range and have trialled our heated gloves and heated insoles which, powered off a strong central battery unit, will protect them against the harsh and life-threatening conditions, such as frostbite.

We wish Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the six explorers all the best!
