I completely agree with Carol, over the primroses. I had no idea that they were edible tho' ! In this case, we have enough to see us through the summer, autumn and winter ! ! We started off with two small clumps 5 years ago, and now, we have primroses along the outside path of our allotment, around the wildlife pond, up top of lotty, around wor shed, a bank of primroses down near the road, and in every spare patch of ground which is now, no longer spare ! Anyone want some primroses ? They are very hardy and take some quite cavalier treatment, and like a dog, they give love unconditionally. A beautiful truly BEAUTIFUL flower !
