Primula and Early Spring Perennials: Order Now

Spring is upon us and that means you’ll need to start ordering for next season’s Primula and Early Spring Perennials. Here are some tips for when it’s time to order your Early Spring or Vernalized Perennials, including Primula.

  1. Growers should pick varieties that are best suited for their environment and growing conditions. Picking the right variety is key in Primula production.
  2. Timing and regionality are both important. Growers in the South need to make sure they are using varieties that have lower cold requirements. Good light quality is also needed for successful production.
  3. Use well-drained soil.
  4. Do not overwater.
  5. Feed with a Cal/Mag fertilizer.
  6. If you’re new to Primula, Primlet is a unique series with long shelf life. Danessa is a series that’s good for the South as it requires less cold temps, so it’s easier to produce in this region.
