Common name: PRIMROSE
Plant Classification: Hardy perennial
Maximum Height: 15 cm
The true "Devon Primrose" collected from a bank on our nursery. Sheets of delicately perfumed, pale lemon yellow blossoms appear in sheets of colour in earliest spring (sometimes at Christmas in Devon!).
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.
