I live in the wet Pacific Northwest and am able to grow Primula forrestii from seed with little effort. The bad news is that I can't seem to find the right conditions for getting my seedlings through the winter. My experience is that this primula is not reliably hardy so it needs some cover over winter. It gets botrytis from too much wet but doesn't like drying out either. I've heard that folks in California can grow P. forrestii like a weed. Anyone have suggestions on how to manage it in my environment?
