I have been driving past the sign on the A1 for Edrom Nurseries for years and finally went there today and boy what a place. The Nursery is in Coldingham, Berwickshire on the Coldingham Moor road. The nursery is in a hollow on the road and has buildings on both sides of the road. They have a substantial trough garden and other gardens you can walk through.
Edrom specializes in Alpine plants of all sorts and has a fantastic selection of Hepatica’s (Lungwort) and some of them are eye wateringly expensive (some of them are £200 on the website???). However there is a vast selection of other Alpines at reasonable prices and the varieties are unusual and not widely available. The poly tunnel where the plants for sale is displayed is big enough to have row upon row of wooden benches with circa 100-150 varieties but small enough to fell you are in a well organized, friendly nursery. I ended up buying 14 different plants (there is no such thing as to many plants).
Rhododendron Patty Bee
Sempervivum Boules de Neige
Sempervivum Tip Top
Primula Kushun Krishna
I can’t speak highly enough of this place. It is an absolute gem of a place and I can’t speak highly of this place and i am so lucky to have this on my doorstep.

The ‘Patty Bee’ rhododendron is an alpine plant? I am not familiar with it.
I suppose in a round about sort of way it is an Alpine plant. It is a dwarf rhododendron that can be used in a rockery’
