In­door plant of the month

Home (South Africa) - - GARDEN DIARY -

Prim­ula acaulis ‘Danessa’ English prim­rose (Prim­ula acaulis) is win­ter’s most colour­ful in­door plant. ‘Danessa’ al­ways stays com­pact and neat (14–18cm tall and wide), car­ry­ing its vividly coloured flow­ers like a bou­quet above dark green leaves. The range of flower colours in­cludes blue, bur­gundy, golden shades and rose. It needs bright, in­di­rect light. Let the soil dry out slightly be­tween wa­ter­ings and feed with a liq­uid fer­tiliser once a month.
