Primroses come in a wide variety of colors, including red, yellow, white, purple, and pink. There are also many different varieties of primroses. Check your local nursery for the ones that grow best in your area. Primroses are great in flower beds, as borders, and also do well in containers.
Primroses prefer rich soil and partial shade, which is why they do so well in cool weather. Primroses are very hearty. Once they are planted, they can be easily transplanted without causing any damage to them, even while they are blooming. They should be planted 6 inches apart.
After your primroses have finished blooming, remove the dead blooms. Plants can be preserved throughout the winter if you protect them with compost. If they are in containers, you can bring some varieties of primroses indoors during the winter months.
