33 sorts of Primula an Auriculas sown from 22st to 26th, and I don`t have a green-house. The plants will have to grow in the loft, with artifical lights until they can be taken outdoors. One pot has already some small green coming up :) It`s so exciting!

Hei aase
Lykke til med spiringen!

Where do you get your seeds?
Do you grow other kind of plants too?

I received many portions of seeds from this Club – more than 20 sorts as I remember. I`m also a member of The Scottish Rock Garden club, and of The Alpine Garden Society, both giving seeds for free to members. Then I order seeds from Barnhaven Primroses, and sometimes from B&TWorld Seeds or from Ebay. I can see this looks like madness, and it is… still not having a greenhouse. And yes, I grow other plants as well. This season I`ve already sown some Gentianas and Meconopsis, and I plan to sow some Delphine-seeds, Calendula and Nasturtium Alaska (red). Will I succeed? I don`t know yet..

Hello Trond and welcome to the APS forum!! Hope you’ll enjoy it here and will add to the conversations!
I have been getting my Primula seed, like Aase from the APS and NARGS seed-ex. I also ordered some seed from Barnhaven this year as they were having a sale on a few varieties.
I just got back from vacation in the south and now I’m ready to sow some seed!!

Seeds are simply amazing structures. The seed I ordered from this years seed exchange were all planted on the 22nd of February. Germination, at least when I first noticed such, is as follows:

On 8 March [14 days]: 121 – involucrata (32), 160 – auricula double mix (32), 245 – maximowiczii (31), 334 – ‘Lady Agatha’ (32), and 466 – pulverulenta (8).

On March 18 [24 days]: 340 – Cowichan garnet (32), 358 – Spice Shades (32), 368 – Gilded Ginger (32), 387 – Victorian striped (32), and 520 – yunnanensis (32).

Many others are still, I hope, metabolizing their way toward the light.

First number is the APS number and the second, in parentheses, the donor ID. I didn’t realize until now that all but two are from Barnhaven – good seed.

Snow predicted for the next few days and temperatures below twenty on at least one night, and this after a week of the sunny fifties.

Quite a number of people grow from seed today in their cellars as It doesn’t get as cold as their roof space .
