Primula 2016
« on: January 02, 2016, 03:33:05 PM »
The new year usually kicks off for me with this Primula allionii Elizabeth Burrow. So far no sign of buds on any other clones - which is probably a good thing.

Apart from the couple of very early ones I posted in December (or was it November?) only buds on mine I think. Sine we haven't had a dry day in the whole of December and January has started in the same vane work in the greenhouse has been spasmodic to say the least. Yes Mark the plants would be far better for a good frosting, much better for them than this miserable wt and warm stuff.

I posted it in early March last year Steve. Nice couple there. Not only has it been a difficult year for the plants but even more difficult for the gardener, I don't expect a great deal from mine this year.

Agreed, it's been yet another strange season...

Hello Martijn - that's a good big flower.  Did you raise it yourself?

Hi Steve
         Primula joan hughes is actually a hybrid and not pure allionii. Nevertheless your plant is a fine example and judging by the picture is not full of virus as many are, only producing small distorted streaked flowers. I guess you may have got it from Brian who's stock has always been virus free. Look after it . Great plant.

the product of a cross between P. allionii and P. 'Linda Pope' (itself a P. marginata hybrid) originally raised by Jack Drake.
