When and how to sow primula bracteata seed to ensure good germination?

Contribution from Paul Ranson 18 April 2012, 17:23top / bottom of page

Sorry, only just noticed this question. Assuming it to be viable, there is no problem germinating this in a gritty seed compost with the pots left exposed to all weathers. After germination, once large enough to handle they should be pricked out into a very gritty, almost Dionysia like, alkaline compost. Once established they should be given alpine house treatment.
