Kerns - Plant of the Week 2002
PRIMULA (PRIMROSE)

Throughout our season, we offer may special events and invite you to join us.  Pat Kerns also selects a Plant of the Week.
Our home page carries the latest Plant of the Week, with a detailed description.  When you are here, please ask us more about this, and other plants.  Typically, there is a special offer going with the Plant of the Week.

PRIMULA (PRIMROSE)

Primroses are one of the most beautiful additions to the garden welcoming in spring with their neat foliage and showy flowers.  Though most species require a milder, moist climate, there are some that can actually do well in our climate.  I have had luck with most of these varieties, though there are some new cultivars that I have not yet grown here.   Primula japonica may be the least adaptable but I have had some success with that also.  They require relatively moist soil that is well drained (compost, peat and extra sand or scree) so moisture drains away from the roots in winter.  Planting in groups looks best.  For extra precaution you may cover less hardy varieties in winter with evergreen boughs, though snow usually is the best protection.
