Forum home The potting shed

Please can anyone name this plant? It spent all winter as a house plant, in flower.

    As I discovered when my daughter gave me one on Mothering Sunday it's a Fairy Primrose.  I'd never heard of them before but apparently they are not hardy so are grown as annual house plants.

    Thank you, Herbaceous.  I bought it before Christmas and it has flowered indoors ever since.  I put it out in the garden (in its pot) and recently planted it in the soil, where it seems very happy.
    I will need to dig it up during the autumn and bring it indoors again then.  :)

    Hope it survives for you @RosemaryS I am going to try and keep mine going too, we'll have to post pictures next year!  My money is on yours surviving as I am rubbish with flowers  :(
