But the primrose family also offers vibrant colours from orange to red and magenta: bedding primroses and multi-flowered polyanthus are brilliant at filling pots and baskets with cheerfulness at this time of year. Try partnering them with snowdrops, crocuses and early-flowering narcissi like ‘February Gold’ for a real early spring pick-me-up.

Finally, tie the stems back into their supports to train them where you want them to go.
