High in the Himalayan mountains, up to 19,000 feet in fact, this incredibly tough, hardy, and exceptionally beautiful plant, opens its sweetly-perfumed pink-to-wine-coloured, flared, funnel-shaped flowers in early spring. These are borne in umbels on long slender stalks, above low clumps of shiny, bluish-green leaves. It does perfectly well at sea level though given some shade and moisture!
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.
