Went to Coleton Fishacre today ( http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/coleton-fishacre/history/  ) forgot to take the camera, and what should I spy. In a wooded glade, one little primrose in full flower, can Spring be far behind!!

First one in the greenhouse to flower Primula 'Blue Wave'

.... and the first ones in the garden are out too including a couple of Primroses I can't get at with the camera, and this little hybrid whose colour I can't get properly.

The 'Blue Wave' seed you sent to me David has flowered now (washed out by rain now) but was an odd brownish purple colour. Interesting rather than beautiful. Just 3 seedlings, and just the 1 flowered. Maybe the others will be different next year.

Quite a few buds just beginning to break in the greenhouse with the promise of some pictures very early in 2014.

With the very wet Nov/Dec we have had here in the south, (and all over NZ actually) primulas are looking good and seed I bought from Barnhaven and sowed in early November (6th) has ALL germinated with the exception of an allionii/marginata mix and some is now even pricked out and potted up. More ready to do. This is incredibly quick for seed at this time of year. I haven't even needed to water seed pots as they've had rain or drizzle almost daily. So I'm swamped with a mass of little seedlings (31 packets!) of different kinds and look forward to a colourful spring coming in 2014 and 2015. There has been excellent germination of different forms of P. sieboldii which pleases me and I now know to keep it well away from rabbits!
