Primula seedlings need light and air to germinate. Sow on the surface of the compost and do not cover with soil.

The best time to sow polyanthus, acaulis and auricula is between February and April. A little frost can aid germination, but in very severe areas you should delay sowing to March or April.

Primula seedlings are very sensitive to concentrations of mineral salts found in fertilisers. If the mixture is too strong the seedlings may not grow at all, - or the young roots may be killed. Always use a seed compost and look for one which is as gritty and fibrous as possible. Primula roots need air to grow and develop. If the compost is too fine, a few waterings will drive all the air out.

Place a seed tray (perforated) of the same size over your sowings (to protect the seed when left outdoors) and weigh it down with a stone.

Leave the lot in a shady place outdoors. Inspect regularly and water as necessary. Do not allow the compost to dry out. As soon as the seeds sprout remove the cover. Protect against slugs. Polyanthus and primrose sprout within three weeks. #directsow in pots March 15th, covered until #germination

Primulas establish much faster if a good root system has developed before they are moved. Wait until you have at least four leaves before you prick out. A feed with a half-strength high potash fertiliser a week before pricking out helps.
