Thanks to their cheery flowers, which come in a wide range of colours, primulas are one of our most popular spring bedding plants.

Here we’ve combined them with anemones, hebe and sage for a dramatic spring display. Once this display is over, plant everything out into a damp spot in the garden.

This display is pretty and productive, with the sage being perfect for tasty pickings. Harvest leaves sparingly so the display doesn’t look depleted, adding them to roasts and hearty stews.
