Primrose Acaulis Accord Blue

Common Primrose (Primula Acaulis S1 Accord Blue) - Start Primrose seeds indoors to have a supply of lovely, early spring Primrose plants to set out. Primula Acaulis is often referred to as Common Primrose or English Primrose, and it is extremely popular for adding color to late winter and early spring borders in mild climates. These colorful little gems readily grow from Primrose flower seed, and give a rewarding show with brilliant, clear colors. This variety features brilliant blue 1 1/2 inch blooms that are lightly scented. Gardeners look forward to setting out Primrose plants each year as they herald the beginning of a new flower season! A synonymous botanical name for English Primrose is Primula Vulgaris.

Sow Primrose seeds indoors in late fall or early winter. Use starter trays and a peaty starter mix. Press the Primula Acaulis seeds into the starter mix but do not cover the flower seeds. Light is beneficial for germination. After the Primrose seedlings get their second or third leaves they can be transplanted to a protected outdoor seedbed or individual pots. Plant out in late winter or early spring. When planting Common Primrose into its permanent place, amend the garden soil with plenty of peat moss and use a slow release fertilizer. Space the Primrose plants 8 inches apart in a partially shaded setting.
