Sowing Advice

Primula seed may be sown at any time  onto a quality  seed raising mix, barley cover  seed so that 50% is still visible. Best germination temperature is between 10-15 degrees C.  Temperature exceeding 15 degrees may prevent germination , and above 20 degrees C expect very little germination as most seeds go dormant as a protective measure. Germination takes between 3-6 weeks. Keep seedlings in a cool well lit location to grow on before planting out.
