Elizabeth Lawson on Primroses – A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – July 22, 2019

Primroses: What’s not to love about primroses? And I felt that way even before I read Elizabeth Lawson’s deep-dive social and cultural history of them in her new book, “Primrose,” part of a botanical series from London-based Reaktion Books.

She introduced me to the best primulas for our gardens today, and some primrose legend and lore. Elizabeth Lawson is a naturalist and writer from Ithaca, NY, with a doctorate in botany. She’s also the new president of the American Primrose Society.
