Product Description

Details

Scotland's plants are a familiar part of the environments in which we live, work and visit - they are the crops we eat, the flowers that we grow in our gardens, the weeds on our urban streets and the profusion of species that define our wild environments. However, these plants have also influenced the behaviour and lives of Scotland's people - they have provided our food and drink, our medicines, our childhood games and even our love potions!

This book celebrates Scotland's plants and their influences on the lives of Scotland's people.

Creating a visual and cultural feast, Greg Kenicer has taken early herbals as inspiration, combining current scientific knowledge, botanical illustration and plant lore to produce a guide to Scotland's native plants that is as beautiful as the country that they grow in.
