Default hose in hose?


Anyone recommend a supplier of hose in hose? I've been meaning to get a
couple of plants for some time but never found anywhere that grew them.
Now a friend has also expressed a desire to buy some so I ought to start
looking again

Hose in hose? I'm not familiar with this - any more clues as to what it is -
animal, vegetable or mineral? :-)

A quick google suggests possibly azalea, possibly primrose.

If it is primrose
http://www.barnhavenprimroses.com/plants/Enthusiast's%20primroses.htm have
seeds. Never used them just found it on google. Also
http://www.mr-fothergills.co.uk.

They are the wonderful, old primroses, which seem to have a second
flower growing out of the first. They get their name from the
Elizabethan men's fashion of wearing two pairs of hose (tights!), one
on top of the other, and with the outer pair's tops turned down
slightly so you could see there were two.

They were recently rejuvenated by a breeder who has managed to
stabilise the strain so they come almost true from seed (before it was
very random).

Now all I have to do is remember who it was...

Mr Fothergill's were selling seeds of the new hose-in-hose called "you
and me" last year, but don't seem to have them this.

An RHS webpage I found said these folk have them:

Three Counties Nursery
Marshwood, Bridport, Dorset DT6 5QJ
Tel: 01297 678257
Hybrid and old fashioned garden pinks (mail order only).

Hope this gives you a few starting points

Barnhaven are the usual suspects.

It is a Primula it has outer and inner sort of leaves where the flowers
are. 'Wanda' is one named variety. You can also get other plants called
hose in hose but generally it's always alluded to the Primula.

Have you remembered yet?

I know that Three counties nurseries won a silver at the recent RHS show
but don't know of any main suppliers.

I'd already got those thanks but they aren't Primula specialists so
won't have a lot of choice. I know there was one 'proper' nursery in
Leics. or might have been Lincs. they specialised in Auriculas and
primulas but can't find the name
