Primula Plants

The addition of primulas is the best option if you want to a color to your garden or lawn in the best way possible. Growing primulas typically depends on where you decide to plant them in your garden or lawn.

Growing Primulas

A lot of primulas will thrive if regular garden soil will be used. Just make sure that you will improve it by adding grit, compost or peat to make it even more suitable for the growth of the primulas. Primulas thrive best if they are provided with an easy root run, thus make sure that the soil you will use is loose.

Even in alkaline soil, primulas can thrive easily without any problems. Take note that primulas are considered as heavy feeders, thus make sure that you will provide an additional compost or fertilizer to the soil around them. If this is your first time to plant primulas in your lawn or garden, you can opt for certain varieties such as veris, polyneura, denticulate, elatior, auricular or frondosa.

Some of the small varieties of primulas can thrive well if planted in rock beds that have a crevice style. The main point is to tuck the plants alongside rocks or under the shelter of bigger plants so that they are provided with a cool and moist root run as well as protection from direct exposure to sunlight. The primula varieties that thrive well in these beds are the smaller ones such as latifolia, wulfeniana, minima, scandinavica and glaucescens.

Caring for Primula Plants

Primulas typically need minimal sunlight and can be planted in containers. As a low growing plant, it can reach the height of 2 up to 12 inches. If you intend to grow more, they can be propagated through seeds or division.

When caring for your primulas, there are certain things that you need to take note. Initially, expose them to direct sunlight not more than two hours every day. Make sure that you will apply compost on the top layer of the soil every year once spring arrives along with mulch to preserve the moisture as well as keeping the roots cool all the time.

As long as proper care is provided to primulas, they can easily thrive and effectively add color to your garden or lawn.
