Habitats: Woodland Garden, sunny edge, dappled shade, shady edge, ground cover, meadow, hedgerow. The plant prefers sandy, loamy and clay soils and can grow in heavy clay soil. The plant prefers acid, neutral and alkaline soils. It can grow in semi-shade or no shade. It requires moist soil. The plant can tolerate maritime exposure.
Edible Uses: Edible Parts: Flowers; Leaves. Edible Uses: Tea. Young leaves - raw or cooked as a potherb, added to soups etc. A mild flavour, though the texture is a bit tough. The leaves are often available all through the winter. Flowers - raw or cooked. They make an attractive garnish to salads, and can also be used as a cooked vegetable or in conserves etc. Picked when first opened, the flowers are fermented with water and sugar to make a very pleasant and intoxicating wine. Both the flowers and the leaves can be made into a syrup or a tea.
Medicinal Uses: Anodyne, Antispasmodic, Astringent, Emetic, Sedative, Vermifuge. Primroses have a very long history of medicinal use and has been particularly employed in treating conditions involving spasms, cramps, paralysis and rheumatic pains. They are, however, considered to be less effective than the related P. veris. The plant contains saponins, which have an expectorant effect, and salicylates which are the main ingredient of aspirin and have anodyne, anti-inflammatory and febrifuge effects. This remedy should not be prescribed for pregnant women, patients who are sensitive to aspirin, or those taking anti-coagulant drugs such as warfarin. The roots and the flowering herb are anodyne, antispasmodic, astringent, emetic, sedative and vermifuge. An infusion of the roots is a good remedy against nervous headaches. The roots are harvested in the autumn when two or three years old and dried for later use. An ointment has been made from the plant and used for treating skin wounds.
Known Hazards: None known

Merhaba Fevzi Bey,
Bu seferki çalışma için söylenebilecek tek kelime ancak "mükemmel" olabilir.Selamlar,ellerinize sağlık!

Merhaba Fevzi.
Merak ediyorum eczacılığı ne zaman bırakıp bu işe yoğunlaşacaksın. Hobi olarak yaptıkların böyle ise iş edindiğin zaman ortaya kimbilir ne şaheserler çıkacak...

Merhaba Fevzi Abi

Kompozisyon çok güzel. Netlik ve siyah arka plan harika.
