Carolyn: It is not often that you see a sight like this, which is to my eyes something very special. And, I think Carol Dancer would agree with me. Hi, Carol.
Carol: Hello, Carolyn.
Carolyn: And Carol is the Garden Advisor, and we are in the Gardens at government’s house right now.
Carolyn: One of the most days will be an erratic spring day. These plants seem might be in for an erratic weather really and it is wetter.
Carol: Well, they like moisture. Yes. The primula, the candelabra hydrates.
Carolyn: Tell us Carol, what would you, if you want to have something like this in your garden, what would you need to have in your garden?
Carol: Well, you need a bit of shade, not too much shade but a bit of shade. They like moisture and they like a nice humusous soil and if you give them those, along with a bit of an organic fertilizer. They do not like a chemical fertilizer, they like an organic one.
Carolyn: Natural woodland thumbs. Some constant things like that which is maybe your some leaf mooch.
Carol: Leaf mooch is probably better.
Carolyn: That is great, they self see, did they not?
Carol: They self saw and they are quite easy to divide in the late probably around September is the optimum time to divide them. Probably each one of those plants you could probably make another dozen.
Carolyn: Wow! That is the way to go [voice overlap]
Carol: Yes, the wonderful pastel colors it is a wonderful sight.
Carolyn: It totally caught my eyes and not only do they come in a range, but this actually a different specie.
Carol: Yes, yes. This is Primula Japonica and it is just about finished. As you can see all the different tears, as they age, they usually develop another tear.
Carolyn: As they age, so one, two, three, four, five, six years?
Carol: That is right.
Carolyn: That is right. I did not know that.
Carol: And again, they are easy from seed and they are easy to defy. Japonica comes in a sort of cerise red color, or a pink and white.
Carolyn: Pink, and white, and red.
Carolyn: Fabulous! And let us tell the viewers one other thing they need to know about Primulas, and that is that if you want to grow them, you have to have fresh seeds. So, you go out and collect a bit of seed and then saw it right away.
