They're very simple - sow the seed in a tray or pot of compost and leave outside in a sheltered spot. I don't cover primula seed with compost - I leave it on the surface.   When large enough to handle prick out and pot on as they grow.  Hopefully you'll have flowers in a year or so's time.

They like lots of organic matter in the compost, and damp semi-shade. 

I.D Please :)
