The popular, long flowering perennial in bright colours is ideal for borders, bedings, grave plantings, rock gardens, containers and in the lawn.
They are small growing, like dwarf primroses, and are gorgeous colours ranging from yellow, to red, pink, white, even mauve and blue. They grow in pots beautifully. When one flower finishes nip it off with your fingers. There will be plenty of buds underneath, ready to flower. Apply liquid fertiliser once every fortnight over the growing and flowering season and these plants will love it.
Primulas are easy to grow, even for non gardeners and they are a real winner at this time of year.
Primula is an easy, hardy garden plant that can be grown in a variety of soils but will not tolerate drying out in the summer months. It thrives in heavy garden soil in a border and is ideal for small gardens. It also does well in dappled shade.
It is a clump-forming species that can be propagated by division in summer or autumn.
Seeds can be sown from autumn to early spring. Root cuttings can also be taken when the plant is dormant.
