Sir William Lawrence, 3rd Baronet - Horticulture


Lawrence's chief interest, however, was horticulture, an interest he had inherited from his father and grandmother, both horticulturalists of note. He was, among other roles, President of the Alpine Garden Society, an officer of the Ordre du Merite Agricole, a winner of the Victoria Medal of Honour and Vice-President of the Iris Society. Lady Lawrence was also a keen gardener, also winning the Victoria Medal of Honour in her own right.

He was Treasurer of the Royal Horticultural Society at the time of the building of its new hall in Westminster; in 2000 this was renamed the Lawrence Hall after him ("not forgetting Sir Trevor Lawrence", according to the Society's History).
