This gorgeous hybrid candelabra primula between P. bulleyana and P. beesiana, combines the best of both parents giving offspring in a variety of bright but softer pastel colours. Shades can include yellow, orange, red, pinks, mauve and purples. They do best in moisture retentive soil in partial shade or damper conditions, and they also thrive in bright sun, when they will make impressive, self-seeding colonies, flowering in June and July.
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.
