I was going to loosen up the soil and get my container ready for some annuals on my balcony. I notice a couple double primroses I planted last year are growing back. I wonder if I should wait and see how well they grow or just dig them up and throw away now. Iím not in a hurry but Iím also pretty sure they wonít be as nice as new store bought ones.

Five years ago I planted double primroses directly into flowerbeds and left them there. They have been growing, dividing, spreading and blooming every year since then.

Yours look like they have been dividing. You could experiment, try taking them up and separating them all from each other and replanting each one individually so it has more space, is not crowded, to get fuller blooms growing on each plant. Or leave them as they are. Or toss them. Go with your intuition about what you want for your planters.
