About Primula Supernova
These English Primroses love the sun and shade, blooming early and profusely in both! Primula Supernova are a cheerful, colorful and fragrant start to the gardening season and will multiply throughout the years. Their height in bloom is about 10" and the deer never touch them in our garden. All the colors from this mix are truly sweet. If you remove the spent blooms you will get a new flush of blooms. The University of Georgia and the University of Vermont list Primula as deer resistant.
Planting and Growing Primula Primrose
Make sure your Primula Primrose “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is mostly shady to part shade. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
