The familiar wild, pale yellow, single primrose is one of the early signs of spring, coinciding with the first early daffodils. The two associate well together in damp grass or light woodland. Cultivated varieties come in a huge range of colours, and both single and double flowers. Choice named varieties are cultivated in cottage gardens, and spring borders. They are not vigorous enough to cope with conditions in grass which the wild primrose enjoys, and benefit from being lifted and divided every two years. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

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.
