gardener's tip:
In bowls, add sufficient water and do not let them dry out. Once plants are withered they can be planted in the garden. This robust spring perennial (Primula veris) starts blooming from April and is suitable for overgrowing and evolves constantly in the course of years.
The Victorian primrose 'Victoriana' is quite a jewel. It forms attractive, yellow flowers with brown-red crowns on robust stems. Weeks before spring shows itself in your garden, you can already fully enjoy a variety of rich colours in bowls, pots and beds at your house with pre-cultivated and early blooming perennials. Dreamlike spring bloomers make it easy for you to combine and plant just the way you want. The primrose adorns itself with expressive yellow flowers framed by brown-red crowns. The blossoms grow in polyanthous umbels on 15-20 cm tall, sturdy stems and joyfully present themselves to the viewer. Its special shape provides this primrose variety with a nostalgic touch and reminds of grandmother's cottage garden. These marvellous primroses in large pots have strong root balls and are ready to be planted by you. They grow perfectly in humus-rich, moist soil, e.g. close to ponds or under shrubs. They can also be planted in spring bowls or pots on patios or balconies. And you don't have the throw the plants away once the long-lasting and lushy flowering is over. They happily continue growing in your garden and form picturesque clusters the very same year, only to grow many new beautiful flowers in spring.
