Yellowing Leaves on Showy Pink Primrose

Anonymous added on May 8, 2011 | Answered

I have planted showy pink primroses, but on the first two plants around the base, the leaves are turning yellow and are wilting. Is this a result of root rot? The soil is sandy and dries out easily. I've fertilized, but no mulch. What should I do?
