The Plant Lover's Guide to Primulas

By Jodie Mitchell and Lynne Lawson

Primulas are so much more than just brightly colored bedding plants. The older varieties of polyanthus are perfect for spring mixed borders, and the long-stemmed candelabra primulas add beauty to waterside and bog gardens. Then there are small alpine species suitable for rock gardens and the infinitely collectible auriculas.

The Plant Lover’s Guides offer a rich source of information on both new and classic garden plants. Written by enthusiastic experts, they recommend the best varieties for different situations, inspire ideas for new plant combinations, and are packed with resources for the home gardener. These gorgeous guides celebrate the beauty of each plant and form a comprehensive library that every plant lover will want to own.
