I live in Cheshire and have spent the last four years creating my garden which didn't have a single plant in it when I moved in!

Hoping my candelabra Primulas will multiply to to look something like the top left hand photo. Think I'm in for a long wait though 💕😊

I love them, saved mine from the dark shade of the geranium maderense and give it a nice spot, let's see if it still do anything this year

My candelabra Primulas arrived a couple of weeks ago. I've potted them up for winter and will plant them out early spring. Hopefully they will be as colourful as the photo my nephew took. Seems this variety will grow to 3' 😄🌸💕

I just have to create a small bog area first before I plant them out as they like damp/wet ground! Think I'm going to be busy over winter! Will be looking for more help from you all I'm sure! ☺️ @joanboston @juliesgarden @debs69 @janric

Don't need to create any damp area here! New garden and so much wetter than our last. Quite a challenge.

Where abouts are you @joanboston? My last garden was quite wet due to it being mainly heavy with clay and near a stream. But now we are higher up and the soil seems to dry out very quickly!

He saw them at Mount Stewart gardens which is National Trust and said they just about came to his mums chest and she about 5'! He's been back working in the USA and wanted to buy her some but no one knew what it was. @joanboston 😊

Got to be damp for them to flourish. Usually see them by streams or ponds. You should be able to get them online @mojo
