Description

This selection of the vigorous Primula japonica opens layered whorls of red-eyed, pale pink flowers in late spring and early summer, all above strong leafy rosettes of toothed leaves. Additionally, it usually flowers again in the autumn when it is established. It is one of the only candelabra primulas that will not only survive, but indeed thrive, in the average garden situation, as long as it it does not completely dry out. And if it does they invariably recover when they are finally watered again.

Sowing Advice

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.
