Primroses have always been a part of British history, made famous through Shakespearean writing, folklore and for their use in ancient medicine. They are now an extremely popular bedding plant, perfect for cheering up your winter garden and signifying the start of spring.

Primroses are low growing, clump forming plants, with brightly coloured flowers protruding from their large green oval leaves.  Part of Primrose’s popularity comes from how easy to plant and care for it is. It’s surprisingly resilient and can tolerate various types of soil.

Primroses are bred to bloom at different times in the year. Our Primrose Valiant has been bred for its winter performance, flowering from late winter to late spring.  It’s surprisingly hardy and will survive frosts and wet conditions.  Others, like our Primrose Harlequin flowers in the autumn and then again in early spring.

Primroses are extremely easy to maintain, just follow these steps-

Primroses prefer a damp and shady environment so try and find them a dark corner that needs a little colour throughout the winter – maybe visible from a favourite window so you can enjoy their colour even when you don’t venture out into the garden.

  • Primroses look wonderful planted at the base of trees, and slightly beneath shrubs- this provides primroses with the perfect amount of shade.
  • Make sure your primroses are equally spaced to ensure they don’t become over-crowded
  • Make sure you water them frequently, but don’t soak them as root rot is always a possibility.
  • Dead head spent blooms quickly to encourage new growth
