Growing Prim­ula X Pubes­cens Primrose Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Primrose: Sow primrose seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Need light to germinate. Kept at 60-65° F., germination is in 21-30 days. Transplant seedlings 8-12 in. apart when first anchor roots appear at the base of the plants, just above the soil line. Direct sowing is not recommended.

Grow Primrose: Part sun in most climates, full sun in coolest areas. Likes moist, rich, well-drained soil and regular fertilizer. Superb in containers. Taller primroses are excellent for cutting.
