    I hope they did not hurt themselves or damage those beautiful flowers.

    No they do not Keith,
    but I wonder how they grow such new sorts so fast - almost yearly new sorts...
    but often they fall back to more normal primulas after some years in the garden or they are not hardy enough.
    Hope my primulas will be.

    Regards
    Ev :)

    There are possibly breeding farms that grow nothing but seedlings and when they find a good colour for the market they breed that one by the 1000s.

    Its the same with orchids the shops get the rubbish and the quality show orchids get the real big money.
    Only problem is it takes years to grow from a seedling to an established orchid.
