Winter color (post #2): Primroses
We go to an annual for this post and it’s a hot pink primrose. Primroses come in just about any color. They do best if planted in pots because slugs and snails love the tender plant material but if you are good and consistent about using repellents, you can plant them in the ground and they will come back every year. This flower I took a picture of has been popping up for about 4 years and I don’t even give it the attention it deserves. It is one of those plants that when you are done with them in your pots, move them to the garden and see what happens. Primroses are a relatively cheap flower to purchase and are sold just about anywhere in the fall. If you deadhead or "pinch" the older flowers off every week it will keep producing new ones till late spring.
Don’t forget that you can always contact me if you have questions or need a garden consultation
