A Great Time for Primroses!!!
Growing Requirements for Primula and Primroses
Most Primula are hardy in USDA zones 5-9, Primroses prefer cool temperatures, rich humus soil with lots of compost. Primrose plants appreciate full sun in the spring but they must have partial shade as the summer temperatures warms up.
Primulas are quite tolerant of being transplanted, even when they are in bloom. Newly purchased plants can be set into the garden in early spring. Older plants can be divided and transplanted right after they are finished blooming.
Primroses should be planted in a cool, partly shady area in the garden with rich, well draining, slightly acid soil (pH 6.5). Primroses must be planted so that their crown is right at soil level and at least six inches apart.
