PRIMROSE VICTORIAN SHADES
Originally grown from the famous Barnhaven range of primrose seeds, these spring flowers open in all colours of the rainbow. Many flowers will have curiously-striped petals too! Always a favourite in Victorian times, you can re-create the ever-popular cottage garden effect with beds of these fabulous, long-lived hardy flowers which will slowly self-seed and spread around your garden for years to come.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
