Primula veris - Wild Cowslip Bedding Plants

  • Catalogue Code 5112-4031
  • Pack Contents: 24 Large Plugs

 The Native Cowslip can often be found in meadows, open fields and on cliff tops.

Similar to the wild primrose, Cowslips prefer a more open, well drained site and are frequently seen in fields and meadows.

The name actually comes from the Old English cuslyppe meaning "cow dung" where it was often found growing amongst the manure in cow pastures! It was used by herbalists as a diuretic and expectorant.

We just love the deep yellow flowers held in clusters on a single stem up to 20cm tall. An absolute must for any wildflower garden.

Supplied in 24 cell trays with a FREE micro propagator These are garden-ready plug plants typically up to 8cm/3in from root to tip. (They’ve been snug in our growers greenhouse so depending on your local growing conditions some frost protection and hardening off may be required).
