Description

The Primrose  name derives from ‘prima rosa’ – the first rose. Very early, lime/yellow flowers are a good source of food for early bees. Grows in woods, hedge-banks and occasionally in grassy places. It should be in every garden, in sun or shade and if undisturbed it will self seed. Primrose was Disraeli’s favourite flower. Our plants are cultivated from the true wild form.

Seed benefits from a period of warm, mixed in damp sand, for 4 weeks, followed by 4 to 6 weeks in a fridge, before sowing. Sow either direct or into a seed tray with light covering of compost.
