Too early to say Margaret. In addition to the Meths treatment they all got a drenching in Provado Bug Clear. I had word from another Primula growing friend yesterday that his plants were badly affected too.

Thank you David, at least you didn't say your plants had all perished as a result of the meths treatment!  I think I'll give meths a try, just removing the compost and washing the roots in water first.

Stilli on the market as a disinfectant Graeme, but no longer permitted for use as a pesticide.

These plants were grown from SRGC 2015/16 seed, sown on 05 Feb this year and flowering for a while now. They were labelled as P. magellanica, but I had my doubts and clearly they are P. capitata, in what I think is a quite a good dark form?

Nb: brown leaf tips are due to me missing a watering and the plants drying out in the summer  :-\

Nice P. capitata Matt - not as dark or rich a purple as the ssp. mooreana often seen but I really like the large flared flowers. I think there may also be more flowers per head than usual?

I'm not expecting a good flowering season this time after the trials of last Summer, but here's my first:-

Many of my Primula allionii hybrids are showing bud and flower, should I be removing these to prevent any possibility of fungal infection. If flowers and buds are removed now, will they produce another flush later in the spring,  or do I just leave them and enjoy?

I'd just leave them to enjoy them now - I would be careful to remove dying flowers afterwards.
