Primula florindae  is the most fragrant of them all the primula with a wonderful nutmeg scent. Tall, upright stems appear in summer, with a ball-like cluster of dangling bells in bright yellow but very occasionally red or orange.  Excellent for cutting. Appreciates a site that remains evenly moist all season. Tolerates full sun in cool-summer regions. Terrific at the waterside, or in a wet, boggy spot.

Sowing Advice-
Primula see may be sown at any time  onto a quality  seed raising mix, barley cover  seed so thst 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.
