Primula Season!!!

Tis time for the primulas to come along. Perhaps one of the earliest to bloom in the greenhouse and one of the most stunning. This opinion only coming from one year's experience working with the little guys. We started many Primula varieties from seed many months ago and for the longest time I was hesitant to even think they would make it. However after a real rough first three week in their plug trays they perked up to be one of my favorites. I think deep down they are my current favorites because for once all the work paid off. The photos below are of Primula 'You and Me Maroon' and Primula 'You and Me Golden'.

There is another in the series, Primula 'You and Me Cream' but he isn't blooming yet. I can't wait until I see some kind of bloomin' action, the Cream was the trickiest of the three to get going. In fact I think I can pick out the frown line on my face that is from the trying Primula 'You and Me Cream'. Hopefully I'll see some to them bloom soon and I'll be sure to post.


  1. I adore primulas! When I was in Florence I found a little yellow one in the street and actually brought it home on the plane! It's still planted (7 years later!) on my deck.

  2. They are so pretty. They come in most brilliant colors and just perk you up to look at them. You have grown some beauties.

  3. Pretty! Colorful and dainty, too!

  4. Stella - are you ok - not sure if you're away or sick. Just popping by to say hello.
