Plant Care Information
- Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover. If you canít do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
- We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
- When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
- Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
- Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they donít like to be left in standing water.
- Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
- Primroses enjoy moist, well-drained soil. Established plants can be planted out anytime unless the soil is waterlogged or frozen.
- Dig a hole the same size as the plantís root ball. Place the plant in position, firm down the soil and water.
- To prolong flowering, remove spent flower heads and remove any yellow leaves.
- Divide clumps every couple of years in early autumn.
