Top Tips

For best results grow Primula vialii in moist soil in partial shade. Large clumps can be divided after flowering.

Care Guide

  • Prefers a damp soil with plenty or added organic matter in partial sun. Requires little attention.
  • Remember that the roots must not dry out, so water regularly during hot, dry periods to prevent the soil from drying.
  • Deadhead faded primula flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced or leave the spent flowers in place to allow them to self-seed.
