Plant of the Week: Primrose
This diminutive little trooper gets its name from the Latin for ‘first to flower’ – and every year the first primroses to unfurl deliver their message that spring is just around the corner.

But the primrose family also offers vibrant colours from orange to red and magenta: bedding primroses and multi-flowered polyanthus are brilliant at filling pots and baskets with cheerfulness at this time of year. Try partnering them with snowdrops, crocuses and early-flowering narcissi like ‘February Gold’ for a real early spring pick-me-up.
