PRIMULA CANDELABRA 'HARLOW CARR'
The Harlow Car selection of candelabra primulas is one of the brightest available, with tall stems holding tiered whorls of large bright orange, red and scarlet flowers which appear in April, May and June. These will grow in ordinary garden soil, but in a wet or damp situation they will make a dramatic statement to all who see them.
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, primulas are COOL germinators! As a rule 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 can go dormant as a protective measure. Germination can take up to 6 weeks, but sometimes takes much longer.
