About us and opening times

Edrom nursery was founded around 1925 by Edith and Molly Logan Hume. Sales were from a single table placed by the roadside at the village of Edrom where passers by were invited to purchase. Edith and Molly Logan Hume were plant hunters, collecting new species etc. from China and the Himalayas amongst other places. Over the passing years the nursery gained a reputation for having some very unusual plants and the reputation has been maintained to the present day. Around approximately 1933 the nursery moved from Edrom where the climate, according to Edith & Molly, was a little warm. It re-settled 1 mile West of the village of Coldingham nearer the east coast, where it still lies today at approximately 600 feet.

 

In it's time the nursery has had four owners, Edith & Molly Logan Hume being the originators, the ownership then passing on to Alex Duguid their gardener who took the nursery to a wider audience. He maintained the high level of plant quality but also began exhibiting plants at flower shows particularly the Royal Horticultural Society's flower halls at Westminster in London. Here the nursery really gained a reputation for the unusual. The third owner was James Jermyn who continued the growth for approximately 20 years.

 

We hope to maintain the reputation of the nursery now and into the future, bringing a little modernity to the whole site. We have in the past won Gold Medals at the Chelsea Flower show along with numerous gold medals at other prestigious shows around the country. 

 

We have at present, a trough garden with over sixty troughs, raised beds and a half acre woodland garden, all of which may be seen in the miscellaneous pictures gallery. A four acre woodland garden is under development as we speak although this will take some time to complete, as we are still at the stage of removing bracken, brambles, gorse and fallen or unstable trees. We're hoping this will be ready for 2018. Paths and bridges have been constructed and planting of the beds is in full flow.
