This extremely vigorous and hardy candelabra primula thrusts up numerous strong stems bearing bright orange or occasionally red flowers with darker eyes. It does especially well in waterside environments where it will self-seed generously making fabulous clumps!
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.
