This year.

Perhaps I should invest in an oil-press!

I have never grown it Ragbru, although I have taken the capsules. Did you sow from seed and is it possible to reap the rewards on a domestic level?

Bought half a dozen plants a few years back, which have really proliferated.

I do not envisage that any harvesting is feasible on a domestic scale.

I bought them because of the very early bloom, to herald the departure of Winter: they even beat the daffs, and this year, they beat the snowdrops.

Interestingly, that is the derivation of their name 'primrose'= first flower!
