Description

This spectacular and quite beautiful scented primula from Tibet is a very easy clump forming, extremely hardy long-lived garden plant flowering from May into June. It thrives in cool humid situations such as stream sides, edges of ponds and damp hollows where It will spread by self sown seedlings when conditions remain moist, thereby extending the group quite naturally. Thriving well with other moisture loving plants such as Astilbe, its rich, sweetly scented perfume from the violet flowers is carried around the garden on cool still June evenings.

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.
