The primrose, Primula vulgaris, is one of the most familar signs of spring. Typically found in woodlands and benath hedgerows, it thrives in damp shade in a variety of situations. It provides an early source of nectar and pollen for bees and other pollinators, and is used as a caterpillar foodplant by several species of moth.
Grow Primula vulgaris in a cool, shaded spot such as a woodland border. It associates particularly well with daffodils, which flower at the same time. Allow plants to self seed and naturalise around the garden. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost.

Every garden should have a primrose.
I'm not a fan of yellow flowers but primroses look smashing in springtime.
Every now and again a pink flowered one pops up in my garden.
