Glad you're ok Fairy ((hugs))  broken latch excepted

Get them to put one of those spring thingies on the gate so it'll close for them.

We've been waiting ages for the Water Company to come and repair a broken main at the bottom of our road as a lake was beginning to form - why do they wait until the first day I can get out into the garden to start their pneumatic drills???

Candleabera Primrose

They're very simple - sow the seed in a tray or pot of compost and leave outside in a sheltered spot. I don't cover primula seed with compost - I leave it on the surface.   When large enough to handle prick out and pot on as they grow.  Hopefully you'll have flowers in a year or so's time.

They like lots of organic matter in the compost, and damp semi-shade. 

I.D Please :)
