Rare Plants is a small, UK company based in Wrexham, in North Wales.
We were founded originally in 1972, by Paul Christian, at the time a student of Botany at Liverpool University. The original business was a part-time enterprise until 1980. Having completed his studies at Manchester University, with a further research period for a Ph.D. again at Liverpool University, the now Dr. Christian took on the running as a full-time business.
In 1985 the nursery moved from its original mountain home at Minera, above Wrexham, to a lower altitude on the alluvial plain to the north of Wrexham, a site more suited to bulb cultivation. Presently we run this, and two other sites, for bulb production.
Dr. Paul Christian is still the director and the company has now traded continuously since 1972, for some 41 years.
