Germinatrix warmth

February 13th
Night temperature: -23˚C
Day temperature: -20˚C to -17˚C

I don’t feel like saying more…I checked to see if all the ‘youngsters’ and tubers hosted in the garage are still above zero degrees and then I took refuge under the growing lights.

The Primula parryi seedlings are also very cheerful at this time:

    So envious of your Primula parryi! I have an entire tray of 32 pots of various Primula seed sown and under lights. They were sown about 10 days ago…..waiting for the first tiny tips of green is so agonizing!!

      Yes, and it seems to be true but not 100% until it will flower ;)
      My Primulas are at cold for a little while, this year I sowed together the warm and cold requiring ones, to simplify the process.
