Primroses

Primroses make a welcome addition to any garden. The array of vibrant colours and the fragrance is unbeatable.

At Lyonshall Nurseries we grow all our own primroses and have a succession of these wonderful blooms from November - April.

Most are hardy and will flower again the following year. Modern breeding has produced some stunning varieties that pove to be reliable, packed with flower & very fragrant.

Easy to look after. Just water & de-head regularly. Feed as required. 

Ideal to plant in containers, beds & borders. On their own or in mixed plantings with Spring bulbs, heather, pansy & viola, bellis, forget-me-not etc. They work well in hanging baskets too.

Usually trouble free - but can be prone to vine weevil in some seasons.
