How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost.

For best results , place the tray in the main part of a refrigerator for 3 days, although this is not essential. Then place the tray in warmth 10-15C (50-60F), and keep moist.

Higher temperatures will prevent germination. Virtually all members of the Primula family require these cooler conditions.

Sowing Distance

15cm / 6in

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out from early summer onwards. Allow 15cm (6in) between plants.
