Product Information

Cowslips are one of those Spring plants, just like wild primroses, that signal the start of Spring and better things to come.

These old-fashioned cowslips are perfect for planters, borders or dotting around your lawn and their cheery tall stems of yellow bell-shaped flowers add a natural look to this formerly widespread wildflower.

They're also the perfect starting point for creating a wildflower garden and will burst into life from March and continue through to the summer. They take very little looking after so are great for adding splashes of buttery yellow colour to contrast against green foliage and your lawn, and all with very little effort. They work well in mixed seasonal planters or dotted round mixed borders or even lawn plantings, as grassland meadows is their native habitat.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

They're winter hardy so will keep coming back each year in the spring and love a sunny spot in moist soil. Plant in late summer and early autumn or best results next spring.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.

Top Tips

Keep the soil around the Cowslip nice and moist - it will thrive in moist soil, especially if positioned in full sun.

Care Information

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds.
  • Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Knock the plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball. The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
