Primulas are woodland plants that come in a selection of shades - cream, pink and apricot - and will bring the colour of spring to a dark winter window sill..
They need some light, but you should avoid too much direct sunlight which will scorch the young leaves. A north, west or east facing windowsill is ideal, not too close to the glass and away from any radiators
You will need to water regularly especially if in a warm spot. . In a warm room you may need to water several times a week. Try to keep the compost damp - not dry and not soggy.
If your primroses are in pots they can be allowed to suck water up from underneath - just leave the plastic pots in a tray or sink with a couple of cms of water for a few minutes before returning to their planter. If your primroses are in a metal trough just water the soil regularily from the top, but don"t overwater or you will get a pool at the bottom which could drown the roots
Keep pinching out the flowers as they fade to encourage the young buds. When all the flowers are over why not plant out in the garden or a window box for next year?If the leaves or flowers start to droop, water thoroughly immediately and they should recover.
