    Hi essexcowboyfound to this on, going to have a go myself.

    Propagation: Primroses are easy to propagate from seed or by division. Seeds lose their viability if stored badly, so are best sown in pots as soon as they ripen, during the early summer. They should be sown on the surface of a good seed compost and not covered with compost. The pot should be placed in a semi-shaded spot and should not be allowed to dry out: germination will take place in the autumn or following spring. Alternatively, plants can be divided, removing an excess of woody rhizome, and shortening long leaves by half: plant as for mature plants, detailed above.
