I bought a primrose at end of season price. I thought they need cool temperatures 50F and indirect light to flourish and flower. But my primrose is developing crisp leaves rather fast and i am worried if i am doing something wrong. Guide me on taking care of primroses in containers

Primroses like rich, moist soil and cool temperatures. The crispy leaves can indicate dry air or overfertilizing (salt burn turns the leaf margins crispy). Or, yours might just be showing stress from being transplanted. You can clip off the crispy leaves - new leaves should emerge from the crown of the plant until the weather turns warm. At that time your plant will go into dormancy but will return in the fall. Good luck with your primroses.
