Evening 👋🏼 - another pic from last wkd. This lovely pink form of the primrose pops up every now and again. Establishing quite a large clump now although these are the only flowers so far. Cataloguing separately to the other wild one I have in case it is different. Nearest I’ve got so far as Primula vulgaris subsp. sibthorpii but not sure 🤔 it doesn’t look like a cultivated one

Richard, what is the difference between a cultivated primrose and a wild primrose? Is it easy to tell the difference between the two? 🤔

Hi Karen. I dont actually know for sure, just a hunch. I always associate cultivated ones to be quite bold colours. I’ve lived in this house for almost 15 years now and this one and the pale yellow one seem to spread around a bit. The pink one less so but still pops up now and again. I did a bit of reading on the wild form and apparently there is a pink form that occurs in the wild too @KOutdoors

Yes I think I might do the same Julie. I’m thinking I need to wait till after the flowers have finished, do you reckon? Or March/April time? @juliesgarden
