Thanks to their cheery flowers, which come in a wide range of colours, primulas are one of our most popular spring bedding plants. here we;'ve combined them with anemones, hebe and sage for a dramatic spring display.

Once this display is over, plant everything out into a damp spot in the garden.

Put a layer of crocks in the bottom of the bowl, then half-fill it with compost. Plant the primulas, anemones, sage and hebe. Fill any gaps with more compost and firm in well.

Water rge plants thoroughly and allow to drain before moving the pot to its final position.

This display is pretty and productive, with the sage being perfect for tasty pickings. Harvest leaves sparingly so the display doesn’t look depleted, adding them to roasts and hearty stews.
