Hi Razzbly,
I've saved seeds from my primroses before, and it is easy. The seed pods will dry up and open on top. Just keep checking the pods every few days. If I remember correctly, it is late spring or early summer when they are ripe, definitely earlier than most plants for seed saving. The seeds can be dark, but could look chalky depending on the species you have and that is OK.
