A well loved selection of the traditional Polyanthus that announces the arrival of spring year after year. This garden favourite produces large blooms up to 6.5cm (2¾in) wide in a good variety of colours. Primula 'Pacific Giants Mixed' is ideal for creating hardy, low maintenance spring flower beds that will remain neat and tidy even after the flowers have ended. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Try the sweet tasting petals on top of salads or even pancakes, crystallise them for use as cake decorations too. For more details about edible flowers click here.


1 packet (15 seeds) (23945)

Sow Primula seed from February to July on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the pot or seed tray in a shaded position at a temperature of 15-18C (60-65F) until after germination, which usually takes 10-30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Once most of the seed have germinated, sprinkle a tiny amount of compost over the roots to anchor them. If there has been no germination after 30 days put the pot in the fridge (not freezer) for 2-3 weeks and then return to warmth. Check on the seeds regularly whilst in the fridge and remove them if they start to germinate.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cool, moist conditions. In autumn, when Primula plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting outdoors. Plant primula at a distance of 23cm (9") apart in sun or semi shade in moist, rich fertile, well drained soil.
