Planting young plants

From Early Autumn TO Mid Spring

Alpine varieties require a humus rich, well drained soil and are suitable for rock gardens or alpine houses. Border primulas require more moisture and should be grown where the soil does not dry out or where they can be watered when necessary. They are ideal for bog gardens and waterside planting. Plant border primulas between mid Autumn and mid Spring in full sun or partial shade, incorporating peat or well decayed manure. Plant alpine varieties between early Autumn and mid Spring in sun or partial shade, adding leaf mould or extra gritty sand where necessary.

 

Propagation by division.

From Mid Spring TO Early Summer

Most primulas can be divided after flowering and planted directly into their flowering position.
