To many Primroses


By bjs


In january of this year I purchased three packets of seed from Barnhaven Primroses .One is mixed Cowichan Polyanthus these are much neater growing than your garden ctr varieties and are mainly of one colour flowers.
The second packet is Double Primroses of these only a percentage will be fully double.
The third packet is a mixture of Anomalous Primroses these are Hose in Hose.Jack in the greens. and other odd things.!
There were about thirty + seeds in each packet and were sown straight away.germination was about three weeks and about ninty five per cent grew
they were potted into 6 cm pots.
I have now almost finished moving them into 10 cm pots which with feeding will carry them through the winter I hope.
If that were all I had it would be ok but the problem is I already have about another 300 in pots besides they all need shade and will soon have to be treated to prevent Vine Weevil. I love growing them as every one will be different, another thing to look forward to in the dark of winter.
But what to do, the Dog keeps biting me because it wants to play or go out ,the Wife complains she only sees me when I want food( same with the dog) AND He found a courting couple in the long grass on Tuesday and ended up with a Tick below his eye, that will teach him to be nosey.Then ther are two people waiting for paintings of there dogs.And the grass needs cutting again.
I need some good pills and a 48 hr day.

If you want to swap for something I will take a couple of pots of double primroses from you~I bought plants from there about 18 months ago and lost some over the winter~
