Pot up plugs into 9cm pots and grow them on in cool, lightly shaded conditions for transplanting later on. When primula plants are well grown acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days prior to planting them in their final positions. Plant primula in containers and borders in fertile, reliably moist soil. Candelabra Primulas prefer a shaded position but will cope in full sun if soil is constantly moist.
Deadhead faded primula flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of border grown plants.
