Primulas gone to seed

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 19:51

Hi chilli lover,

I am new to the site and felt kinda silly as I think I am not a very experienced gardener  and likely alot of people on this site are very avid knowledgeable gardeners. I would normally ask my Mom as she knew all the garden answers but she is no longer with us. I live near Vancouver, BC just a suburb of the city. It is very wet here currenlty but yes the climate is normally pretty warm for the most part. Maybe one day I will be lucky enough to visit the UK. Thanks so much and cheers.

Laurie

Hi Bob the gardener,

Thank you so much for your information. I found it very interesting. I am just a novice gardener with a tiny yard but I luv to get out in the dirt and plant! I think you are right about the cross pollination. When it has bloomed and faded I will then move it from the container to my small garden for next spring. Thanks so much as I did not think anyone would answer me! Have a great day and happy gardening.

Talkback: Growing primulas

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 00:26

happymarion I am new to this site and was wondering if you or anyone else can help me. I have noticed my purple primula plant now has white flowers growing on the same plant. I seem to remember my Mom saying that I should pinch them off as the white flowers means the plant has gone to seed. I was wondering if this is true? It sounds like you know alot about primulas. I would really appreciate any help.Thanks

I have a primula plant that is purple. I have noticed now off the same plant are white flowers not purple ones. My now passed away Mom once said to cut these off as it means the plant has gone to seed. I was not sure if this is correct.
