Light up your garden with Candelabras

Primulas were once just flowers that I associated with late winter / early spring.  When I was growing up primroses and polyanthus grew prolifically in my grandad's garden.  They were one of the first flowers I grew myself as a child; the first plants that I learned how to divide and transplant ...with great results; with very forgiving leaves and roots around a gardener with little fingers.   Little did I realise back then how diverse the Primula family really was! Years later I grew them from seed after giving the seeds 'a taste of winter' in my fridge. But it wasn't until I moved to Perthshire that I had the opportunity to grow lots more hardy Primula species.  Ones that would flower not only in early spring but well into July September!
