Primroses are an iconic group of plants, often the first to welcome the
end of winter, with species and hybrids that satisfy a variety of garden
settings. They have exceptional character, their presence conferring a sense
of homeplace in those who cultivate them. They are easily grown from seed,
naturalize when happy, and multiply through division as well. I will share
my experiences with primroses – as a horticultural student at Kew Gardens,
as a home gardener growing them from seed, and as a writer doing research
for Primrose, published by Reaktion Press in spring 2019, a title in their Bo-
tanical series. Each volume in the series covers the botanical and horticul-
tural, as well as the social and cultural, history of a group of plants.
