Primrose Acaulis Accord Scarlet

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 English Primrose plants out in late winter or early spring. When planting Primroses into their permanent place, amend the garden soil with plenty of organic matter and use a slow release fertilizer. Space the Primrose plants 8 inches apart in a partially shaded setting. Primula Acaulis care includes keeping the Primrose plants well watered to help their bloom season last as long as possible.
