They appreciate full sun in the spring, but must have semi-shade as the temperatures warm. They are quite tolerant of being transplanted, even when they are in bloom.
Common name: polyanthus
Color: Most colors except green
Bloom time: Seasonal bloomer
Height: 0.50 to 1.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow
Planting & Care
The primrose seeds should be sown on the surface in the autumn. As they are difficult to grow from seed in many areas you may prefer to use plants bought from a garden center; plant these out following the last frost of spring. In both cases small varieties of Primrose should be spaced about 15 to 20 cm apart; and larger Primula varieties about 40 cm apart
Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 6-12ºF / 3-6ºC
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- When starting off primrose from seed indoors do so about 2 to 3 months in advance (with a view to transplanting them outdoors after the last frost of spring).
- The seeds should be mixed into soil and put in a plastic bag.
- It is fairly easy to look after primrose, Cowslip and other Primula members.
- They have a preference for a cool soil so it is good to supply a mulch before summer.
- Primula should be fed with a non-organic fertiliser just before flowering.
Primulas are a delightful indoor plant, a true harbinger of spring. They also will grow in the garden, but will not thrive in the heat of summer.
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
