Q. Tell us more about Primula, are these grown from seeds or seedlings purchased from Nursery? Will they survive summers, blooming period etc?

thanks everyone :D ....in fact i will be out for next days till 22 feb due to my exams so updating early. :) and about your question as i early told that it is my first experience i got these seedlings from a nursery near saggian bridge Lahore @ 20 per plant..i will request senior members especially umar khan sb to please tell us more about this primula species.for me till now it is very vigorous and beautiful plant.flower stalks are emerging rapidly .. and according to flowers of India it is a biennial plant so we can hope that it will survive till march at least.and another thing according to dave's garden it can grow in zone 11...

Malacoides are stunning & when the Polyantha blooms please do share.Cyclamen are best in pots is,t it.The most beautiful is the Carnation Lilliput pink.
