Additional Information

Primula will benefit from a small application of organic fertiliser throughout active growth. It is recommended that you should regularly prune Primula by removing dead leaves and spent blooms, as this will encourage a further flush of flowers during the following season. Primula should be watered on a regular and consistent basis until they become fully established. Hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
