Sow November-June on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a very light sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 18-20C (65-68F) After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 21-30 days and may be erratic. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Please Note: This Primula needs no pre-chilling. Sow Jan-Mar for 1st year flowering.

Plant out once plants are well grown, 20-30cm (8-12in) apart. For best results, provide a humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
