Primula obconica


Primula obconica

Living on the cold floor with the still sleeping fuschias. I should have better luck this year, I think last year the indoor warmth was too much for my newbies. I like these unusual leaves.

I love these GT, and you are so right they do not like warmth.

Thank you Val, TOG and Lincs. :-) Its about 12C on the floor or cooler, so I expect it to fare well. Last year I realised it too late.

Thank you Clarice. Its doing well so far. Flowers on a tall stem, which I prefer. I'll be sad to lose it, but I think it'll be fine this time round.

It's really felt like spring here this wk still chilly around 7C but the sun promises to shine for a few days yet. I love being able to dry washing on the line. I've had my nephew here helping with some cleaning coz he's unemployed and wanted some money to go to the Cinema. He forgets I'm unemployed too but at least it helps gets rid of some more clutter. Lol

Thanks Sixpence. It has lost a few blooms but is still doing very well in this cool spot. Might survive for years now I know what to do with it. :-)
