I have had some very good Primula growing in pots this Spring which have now gone over but they still have very strong leafing. Is it possible that they will flower again or should I compost them.

Keep primrose plants looking good by pruning off the dead leaves and spent blooms. If you want to collect the seeds of your primroses, wait until late summer or early fall before taking them. Store them in a cool, dry place until the following planting season or sow them in the ground after the last frost. .

Perhaps the kind of Polyanthus-type primulas, sold as a spring house plant (at least here in southern Ontario), very early in the year.

They do not rebloom. At least here (ground frozen solid in winter), they can be planted out in the garden once the garden gets going. A small percent survive (here) to bloom in following Springs. Several that did survive in our garden became very long lived.
