Growth Habit and Planting Instructions: Primula prefers partial to full shade and thrives best in moist, well-drained soil. The plant typically reaches a height of 6-8 inches and forms a rounded mound. To plant the seeds, begin indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date for your area. Plant the seeds in a seed-starting mix and lightly cover them with soil. Keep the soil consistently moist and maintain a temperature of about 60-65°F. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, spacing them 6-9 inches apart. With proper care, the Primula Supernova Mix will grace your garden with beautiful flowers from late winter to early spring, year after year.
