wednesday’s flowers – yellow primula

January 25, 2012

Spring flowers are everywhere right now, except outdoors! If you are tried of he silly weather we are experiencing why not bring a bit of Spring indoors?

While shopping for ideas for today’s Wednesday’s Flowers post I came across some lovely 4″ Primula hortensis, also know as Primrose, at the local Sobeys store.  They have locally grown Primula available right now for only $1.99 per pot!

I picked up a bright yellow Primula to bring home to play dress up with. Primulas are available in lots of great colours; red, pink, purple, white and yellow.

Living Fresh’s ingredients for dressing up potted Primulas:

  • Potted Primula, 4″ pot
  • Decorative container, I used a small 4″ milk glass planter
  • Green Reindeer Moss
  • Spanish Moss
  • Curled branches
  • Coloured Sticks
  • Potting soil may be required for transplanting

Step 1: Transplant Primula into decorative container.

Step 2: Add moss, tuck into voids and around rim of pot.

Step 3: Add curled branches and coloured sticks

Enjoy!

If you are need of a little bit of Spring, get yourself a pot or two of Primula and dress them up. These little gems can be planted in the garden in late May; they are plants that keep on giving!
