Growing Calendar for Primrose 'Sweetheart Mix' - Bedding Plants
Delivery: Early October to Late November
Create a pretty flower scene in winter when other flowers are scarce with primrose Sweetheart Mix. Each flower comes out in the grip of winter in a unique shade of pink. This brings up-lifting flower colour to your outdoor area, be in your garden or allotment plot.
Flowering happily in full sun or even part-shade Sweetheart Mix adds colour and soft scent in winter. Position your plants in containers or in a flower bed that receives full sun or part shade.
Plant with aconites and snowdrops in beds underneath trees that are bare in winter. The combining colours complement each other perfectly in deep winter. If planting in containers, position six plants to a 30cm (12in) diameter pot.
Put your plug plants into 9cm pots filled with soil if the weather is still cold when your flowers arrive and transfer into the garden once they are a little bigger and they fill up your 9cm pots.
How your plants arrive:
Your plants are sent to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots and some young green stems and leaves. Although they are small plants they are just the right size to get growing fast once you plant them in bigger pots.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create an effective humid atmosphere for your young plants to thrive and get a promising start to give you lovely flowers. Your container may come in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
