Spots on the leaves, fringed yellow-orange, possibly with white fungal growth beneath. Some spots might be white, others brown, surrounded by papery tissue. When the centres fall out, the leaf ends up peppered with holes.
Spores carried by water and wind spread this fungus, which leaves primula foliage peppered with holes. The initial signs are spots in a yellow-orange area, or in grey, papery tissue. When the centre falls out, holes appear. Look beneath the leaves and there may also be white fungal growth.
Promptly pick off and destroy affected leaves. If leaf spot is a persistent problem, try growing your primulas under glass.
