PRIMULA CANDELABRA RAINBOWS
Strong stems hold heavy heads of bright flowers arranged in whorls. These plants are easy to germinate, grow and keep, especially on moist, well-manured ground. These are collected from a combination of our best candelabra colours including scarlet, yellow, pink and purple.
Primula seeds may be sown in good light conditions at any time onto a loam-based compost, barely cover so that around 50% are still visible. We never use artificial heat as cold and natural day to day fluctuations can help germination, and best temperatures are usually between 10 and 15 degrees C. (e.g. a cool greenhouse or northerly window sill) PLEASE NOTE: Temperatures exceeding 15 C can prevent germination, and above 20 C expect very little germination as seeds often go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3 to 6 weeks, sometimes taking much longer.
