If you want to set primroses from seed do it now Janette. As fresh as possible for primrose and cowslip seeds and leave them outside. I wouldn't recommend direct sowing though, there'll be a lot of nettle and dock seedlings coming up to swamp them. Aquilegia vulgaris is wild as well, that can be sown now or a bit later and left in the cold. I sowed mine in a cold GH in January with excellent results.
Pulmonaria is good for early bees, though the one I find best and earliest, P. rubra is not wild in this country.
