Primroses with white blotches


I'm very new to gardening as this is the first home I've lived in since I was a child with a gardenable garden.

I recently planted some primroses and they have slowly developed some white blotching.

I am attaching two photos. The one with the yellowing leaves was planted with some of the roots exposed which I think explains the yellowing leaves. I did a patch job on it but I guess I should just properly replant it.

Any advice would be appreciated.

    no but sometimes threads just move so quickly things get missed. The white blotching just looks like water damage to the petals. As the older flowers finish make sure to pinch them out and make room for the new buds to come through they should all be nice and fresh. Try to water from the side of the plant, not saturate the flowers.
