|Primula Candelabra- A Thriving Gift|
The friend who gave me this Primula has not had the same show with hers as this one gave last year, in its second year with me. It sprouted three vigorously flowering candelabra and attempted a fourth. Another bunch of leaves just like this one has appeared this year. It would be lovely if it becomes a successful relative and companion. I have recently planted other types of Primulas in the same patch. I would love to see a natural spread of Primulas. I want them to be a part of the perennial natural garden corner I am trying to create with a variety of seasonal flowerings plants.
Moral of tale: read eco seed packet carefully if you do not want to re-seed your garden plot with weeds.
Last year, I also planted really old Cornflower seeds from the remainder of a packet I had in a drawer; to my surprise they eventually produced a lovely little show, though, not for long as with late flowering, late Autumn, which can be very chilly here, and in the words of Eliza Doolittle, (My Fair Lady) Autumn is, "as what did 'em in"!
