I need some help. I purchased a couple of primroses and I think I overwatered them. Anything I can do to save them?

Whether you will be able to save them or now will depend on the damage to the root! One thing I always try when I come across a overwatered plant is if it had drainage holes in the bottom to place the plant on a towel or paper towel, something absorbant and change it evertime they get wet! If the pot dosen't have drainage holes, then get one that does, that is the same size as the pot that it is already in and put the plant in that!

Hope that this helps!

What makes you think you overwatered them?

I think I overwaterd them because the leaves and flowers are all limp and hanging over the side of the pots. The woman at the store told me to water them from the bottom which I did, but I didn't think they were getting enough water. So, of course I watered from the top.
