Primrose and Polyanthus advice.

Primroses and Polyanthus are a firm favourite for Autumn and Winter gardens due to their hardy nature. These plants like a shaded area rather than full sun and some of our collection offer early flowering that will last through the summer if given the right conditions. Here are a few tips in helping them to flower for longer and produce great healthy flowers

  • When you receive your plants make sure you’ve grown them on in suitable pots to help the roots mature before planting them in their final growing position.
  • Primroses and Polyanthus prefer a shaded area but can tolerate sunny spots as long as well watered so as not to let the soil dry out.
  • Try and plant your plants around 15cms apart keeping the base of the stem at soil level. Once planted make sure you use a good feed to encourage the best growth and flowering. We recommend Neudorff Organic Multi Purpose Plant Feed, great for encouraging bigger blooms and longer lasting flowers and also pet and child safe.
  • Careful attention to the pruning of these will help them grow for longer, when the flower starts to fade then take the head off to encourage more flowering.

Very small plants arrived in perfect condition. After a week out in pots they are doing well. I hope for a good display during the winter and into the spring. Properly the only bright spot to look forward to.

Wednesday, 7 October 2020  | 

Arrived in fairly good condition. When I unpacked the plug plants were very small, and a couple of them had minimum roots, and only one or very small leaves. There were also only 38 actual plants instead of 40. Have put them in slightly bigger trays in my conservatory to grow on, and it might be some time before they are large enough to plant out, especially with the winter approaching.


Response:

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you only recieved 38 and not 40 plugs and that you felt the plugs were small. To look into this furter we have now emailed you.

My first order with Brookside, primula arrived as described, I had ordered 5 varieties each in a separate box within one large box. left as instructed at the front door. Dispatched Wednesday arrived Thursday pm. Plants left overnight in a shallow tray with a little water and transplanted to single pots the next day. Possible 39 usable plants out of 40. One very small which is unlikely to grow. Similar level of good plants in each of 5 varieties received and these plants are progressing well.
