Biography

Alec White, peony aficionado and owner of the specialist nursery Primrose Hall Peonies, has long shared his passion for these gorgeously flamboyant blooms. Alec is an RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal Winner and keeps the largest selection of rare and collectable peonies for sale in the UK. The nursery regularly exhibits at RHS Flower Shows: Chelsea, Cardiff, Malvern, Chatsworth, Hampton Court Garden Festival, Tatton and BBC Gardeners’ World Live.

Alec also holds the Plant Heritage National Collection for unusual Intersectional or Itoh peony varieties. The eight-acre nursery sits on a lovely sloping site in rural Bedfordshire, run by a nursery team of experienced horticulturists, headed by Alec. The most exciting month is March, when pink buds push through the soil and the season’s promise lies ahead. By late spring the nursery is very busy preparing for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May and the following horticultural shows in late spring, summer and autumn.
