Primulas prefer shady damp conditions
Pot up your plug plant into a 9cm pot and grow under cover until it has fully rooted through when it will be ready for planting out in final position. Whilst growing under cover ensure that the compost remains wet and it will benefit from fortnightly feeds with a general purpose fertiliser. Easy to grow and requires little attention once established.
