Primrose Care

I just bought some primroses, and want to keep them until spring. I live in the Northeast, so spring doesn’t come as quickly as down South. How should I care for them?

Primroses are a lovely spring plant, but I have never been able to grow them in my garden because the plants wilt in during the summer heat that my area experiences. Along with cool conditions and partial shade, they also require steady moisture and soil that is rich in organic matter.

To keep your primrose until spring, simply grow it as a houseplant. Place it in a cool area that will get bright, filtered light. Just as outdoors, your indoor plants like consistent moisture. The soil should be moist to the touch, but not soggy.
