Morrison plant of the week is a potted Primrose for the budget bargain price of 50p

LocalFound 8th Mar 2016
Morrisons have changed their plant of the week to potted primroses in a range of colours, and at 50p each I am planting up my containers in sheltered areas of my garden. Always find the plants from Morrisons grow really well and primroses are easy to look after, they cope well with cold weather too. These all look very healthy and with regular deadheading should flower for a long time to come.

Nearly always get my plants from Morrisons, decent plants at good prices, far better than the likes of Homebase or B&Q. 50p per plant is good as they should be a decent size if they are in individual pots .

Yes, these are definitely well established individual plants, so should take well.
How much are these usually
Bought 5 pots of primroses from another shop. 6 for 5 quid. However they seem to be dying. How do I rescue them? I have watered them and put them in light. They're potted though.

Morrisons only tend to sell their plant of the week during the special offer period in my store, although quite often it will be plant of the week for two weeks running, mine isn't a massive store though so someone who goes to a larger store may find them in theirs at other times. My local garden centre had them on special offer at £1.49 each last year when I needed some, you can buy the small trays of plug plants instead but that's a different thing price wise.

I'm not a massive expert , but if you hold tight and are lucky PrincessJellybean may be along to help you
I got some from home bargains, I think they were 6 for £2 but can't be sure. If you get to the plants before they've been neglected, they are really good.
Can I keep them at home?

Sorry , do you mean can you keep them indoors? If so you can while they flower the first time but they are really outdoor plants, so are pretty tricky to keep indoors. Fine in tubs etc .

I bought three to put in pots in my windowsill, they are in their original pots then inside slightly larger silver bucket pots where a few roots are poking out. was wondering whether to repot into slightly larger pots or into the silver pots while I keep them indoors? When you say tricky is that because of them potentially drying out?

Anyone know what variety these are? Some varieties (obonica) can cause pretty severe allergic reaction to skin on contact -itchy and irritating pimples. Best advice is to not to touch them (wear rubber gloves when potting up or planting out).I love primulas but have experienced this problem and it isn't pleasant.
