PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Whorls of pink or soft red flowers clothe erect stems, at the base of which are rosettes of toothed leaves. This primula can grow to 2 feet high, but will usually be a little shorter.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
The most important thing to remember when growing primula seeds is that the temperature must not be too high, as this can inhibit germination. Aim for 50-60F/10-15C. Sow any time between autumn and spring into a good quality, most compost, barely covering (if some seeds are still visible, that's fine). Germination can be slow and erratic, and can sometimes take months.
