Primula Plant Care

Prefers moist, compost-rich soil. Primula will tolerate morning sun with afternoon shade. Can be divided every 2 to 3 years right after bloom or in early fall. Be sure to replant so that the crown is just above soil surface. Cut back by half after blooming to encourage reblooming in fall.
