The weather is appalling and the garden saturated so I decided to update my Primula Page with a few more examples of this wonderful genus that I grow. Rather than just hide these away I thought I would brighten up the day by previewing them as a post first of all, if you would like to see the page just click here.
|Primula tanneri ssp. nepalensis|
|Primula capitata Noverna Deep Blue|
|Primula flaccida syn. nutans|
Primula maximowiczii, a Nivales Section primula which comes from China. These young plants, in a cold mini-tunnel, are from seed that was cold sown in spring the previous year although they will flower in the same year from an early sowing. They like cool moist acid conditions and being strong growers do better with regular division.
Other than Primula's waltonii, wilsonii and gracilipes all the others are overwintering inside a cold mini poly tunnel or, where plenty of plants are available, have been planted out in a slightly raised piece of ground with plenty of grit and peat added to the soil along with some of the Farinosae Section primulas raised inside which can be viewed on the Primula Page.
Looking forward to some of the beautiful things to come has certainly brightened up my day.
