We recommend planting Primula acaulis ‘Double Princess’ mixed as soon as possible after delivery, in a flower pot or a patio container. Choose a pot with holes in the base to provide adequate drainage. Cover the bottom of the pot with gravel or a layer of hydro granules. Put potting compost or special tub plant compost in the pot and place the root balls of the double flowered mixed primula at the right depth. Fill with compost and press firmly down. Water generously immediately after planting and put the pot in a spot in full sun or (partial) shade.

Water your Primula acaulis ‘Double Princess’ mixed regularly, so that the soil doesn't dry out. By regularly removing the dead flowers of the double-flowering primulas you will encourage a second flowering. For an extra rich flowering we recommend adding plant food to the water on a regular basis during the flowering period. Even though these plants are winter hardy we recommend potting up these mixed Primula temporarily and keeping them indoors in a cool spot. After flowering, the primroses can be planted in the garden.
