Primrose Plant Care In 3 Simple Steps

Primrose Plant Care In 3 Simple Steps

Wow! Sometimes simplicity rules the day. I really like this video about primrose plant care from the folks at Almondsbury Garden Centre because we get a lot of questions about the care of primrose plants.

The primrose plants most often sold by florists are the polyanthus primula, which is a hybrid variety. They are a common plant found at many floral outlets in the fall, winter and early spring.

It is a low growing and compact plant that features small, vibrant clusters of flowers that grow from the center of the plant.

Primrose plant care is really pretty easy as you’ll see in this short video clip. Watch it – I think you’ll agree.

Didn’t I tell you it was pretty simple? Just to recap…

Primrose plant care is very easy, if you follow these simple tips.

  • Primroses like cooler conditions and can remain in bloom for weeks if kept at temperatures between 50° to 60° F.
  • Primroses need little direct sunlight, making them a great winter blooming plant to enjoy in this area.
  • Water your primrose frequently, but do not allow it to sit in water, as it can cause the plant to rot.

With all that out of the way, allow me to introduce myself. I’m the person responsible for this site, Greg Johnson, and I’ve featured lots of cool videos for you here, many of which are plant care related. That’s really what I’m doing with all of this. 🙂

Well, perhaps that isn’t the only reason I’m here…

Okay, so before we get started, I’d like to admit something. Admittedly, my own selfish needs are really what prompted me to create this site. I absolutely love sharing videos that answer a lot of the questions I get at the shop (like the primrose plant care vid you just took a look at), and a cool site on which I could share my favorite videos with you is really what I was after.

But I’m also an unapologetic opportunist. I’m just being honest.

I don’t see anything wrong with earning a little money from sponsorships and product recommendations. I hope you don’t either.

Income or no, I just wanna share solid plant care info with good people like you! 😉

  1. Not poisonous, but can be hazardous. Some German primrose cultivars produce primin, which is an allergen that can cause skin irritation or a rash.

  2. i live in colorado and mine are not doing well indoors. the leaves have yellow spots and blooms die before opening. Im not sure what to do!

  3. Leaf spotting on primulas is usually caused by several fungi. Easiest thing to do is remove the infected leaves when spotting occurs. Fungus is often present in damp conditions. Sounds to me like you should reduce watering a bit.
