Fairy Primrose (Primula Malacoides Mixed) - Sow Fairy Primrose seeds to produce these sweet little flowers for the earliest spring blooms. Dating back to the early 1900s, Primula Malacoides have been a long-time favorite container plant, especially because they can be grown indoors and flower during the late winter and early spring. Fairy Primula establish easily from flower seeds, and they put on a wonderful show in the early spring garden as well, making a perfect border plant and a nice addition to spring bulbs.

Sow Fairy Primrose seeds in starter trays using a "peaty" potting mix. These flower seeds need light for germination, so barely cover Fairy Primrose flower seeds with peat moss. For December and January blooms, sow Primula Malacoides flower seeds in June and July. Keep seeds moist until germination and after as well. Fairy Primroses do not like to dry out. In warm conditions, mist spray daily and stand the pot on moist pebbles. Begin to feed when the flower stalks begin to develop and continue to feed at intervals of 14 days until flowering has finished. Primula Malacoides care includes clipping the spent flowers to prolong bloom time.
