The Cowslip (Primula veris) is a member of the primula genus (primrose family) It is becoming more common again in English meadows and village greens since there has been a change in farming practices that is, away from intensive agriculture to a more conservation minded approach to food production. The Cowslip has long been thought of as a wildflower. In more recent times however, gardeners including myself, have introduced the cowslip to grass areas to bloom in April/May after early spring bulbs have finished. This hardy perennial prefers a sunny position in chalky alkaline not acidic soil. It will tolerate a partially shaded position but the quality of flowering may be reduced. Best planted or sown in Autumn, the Cowslip will naturally spread. If planted in grass, mowing should not be done until after the seeds have set and dispersed in late July (uk)
