Growing Evening Primrose plants

I was given some Evening Primrose plants several years ago. New plant have grown from seeds which have dropped from the plants. But these are not always where I want them.

Can I use the seeds from one of the plants from last year to grow new plants in pots so that I can put them in my garden where I want them.

I do not have a green house only a shed for the lawn mower and other garden tools.

    You can move the plants if they're not where you want them. Otherwise collect the seeds and scatter them where you do want them. You can sow them in pots bit I wouldn't bother, they do OK without help

    Evening primroses aren't primroses Shirley. Common names of plants are designed to confuse and they succeedimage

    Primroses are hardy, plant them out.
