Sorry, my intention was to create a new Topic but it didn't work as I had intended.
The first of my collection of Primula hybrids are beginning to flower now. They had a pretty torrid time in the greenhouse over last Summer and lost a lot of leaf growth and instead of starting their growing period in fine form they have regressed a bit. Must get a fan sorted for the coming Summer.
Primula 'Lindum Moonlight
P. 'Lindum Heavenly'
P. 'Lindum Pride' unfortunately I pictured the worst side of the plant.
P. allionii 'Edmund Evans'
A seedling I purchased from a German nursery early last year.
Another from the same source probably from P. 'Wharfedale Superb'
The plants with 'Lindum' in the name were all bred by a grower based in Lincoln, Eastern England, and 'Lindum' is the Roman name for Lincoln.
in Devon, UK Zone 9b
Lovely to see primroses blooming again!
Please note that there's an "EDIT" button at the bottom of every post, that is visible to the poster. It works in exactly the same way as the "MODIFY" button on the SRGC website. In other words, one can click on it to makes changes to any of one's own posted messages, e.g. add or change the text or the title; add or delete photos. :-)

I can certainly see why the 'allionii' bug hits so many! You have some wonderful treasures there, David. I don't think they'd appreciate my AgCan Zone 5a conditions, and a cold greenhouse here is very cold! Lowest temp this winter was -27 C, I think. Alison
