Hi everyone... 

I have just harvested some fresh native primrose seeds.. I need to know ... do I sow them green or dry them our first.

This is first time doing it by seed as  normally split them.. but th

ought would give it a go.

 

 

Thanks for any help.

They germinate far better if sown fresh rather than dried out ones.

They sow themselves in abundance in my garden which suggests, as they are small seeds, that the most successful method will be just pick them now, scatter them where you want them to grow, sit back and wait! They do like limey and quite conditions.

Best sown now in compost in trays, cover with a fine layer of grit. Put in coldframe and then wait. They may not germinate until spring.
