PRIMULA AURICULA DOUGLAS
Heads of white-eyed deepest purple flowers, shading paler at the edges, open from late winter onwards, above compact rosettes of powdered, leathery green leaves. This choice and lovely form has been selected for several generations and comes rewardingly true from seeds.
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.
