Primulas are bright and cheerful and just ideal for a garden border. Primulas are best planted in dappled shade in soil which is damp and not prone to drying out. If you have a wet area of semi-shade, primulas are just ideal. Primula are tough plants and will do well in most spots as long as it is not too dry or baking hot sun. Sometimes the leaves on Primula can get a bit discoloured, brown at the edges and removing these will do no harm, (provided it is only a few not too many as the plant needs leaves for photosynthesis,) and also dead heading will help to keep the plant flowering.
