Growing & Marketing Advice

Prefers moist, organic soils. In warmer regions, provide extra moisture and protect from hot afternoon sun. Many growers know Primula as a major part of a "cool crop" program to help keep winter heating costs low. Plants are completely winter hardy, but can suffer if exposed to too much summer heat without adequate moisture. Primula is happiest in regions with cool summers, but they can be grown successfully in almost any Zone.
