PRIMROSE DOUBLES AND COTTAGE MIXED
Plant Classification: Hardy perennial
Maximum Height: 15 cm
Packet Content(approx.): 20+
These lovely plants grow all around our gardens and flower in every colour from white to deepest darkest mauves and purples. Trial ground observations predict that this seed should produce up to 15 percent double flowered plants, these usually being the smallest, slowest growing seedlings. Double flowers rarely appear the first year though so although the majority will be single-flowered primroses in many colours, plant all out and be patient!
Sowing advice: Primula seeds may be sown at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. Best germination temperatures are between 10 and 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool, northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, and above 20 C expect very little germination as most seeds will go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
