Pot up Polyanthus plug plants and grow them on in cool, bright, frost free conditions watering sparingly until they are fully rooted into their pots. When polyanthus plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them to their final positions outdoors. Plant primroses in any fertile, moist, well drained soil in borders, beds, and containers. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
Feed and water polyanthus plants regularly. Take care not to over water during winter months as cold, wet conditions may cause the plants to rot. Deadhead faded polyanthus flower stems to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant in autumn. Lift and divide clumps of polyanthus every 3 years in May to maintain vigorous, healthy growth.
