About this book

This handy paperback gives straightforward details of the identification, habitat, folklore, and culinary and medicinal use of all the common wild flowers of the Greater Chilterns in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire. Recommended walks provide an easy way to find them.

The book provides an introduction to the history and geography of the region, written for non-specialists. At-a-glance flowering charts show which month plants are at their best. A colour illustrated plant directory gives simple, non-technical descriptions to enable easy identification. 18 guided walks through lovely English countryside, with specially drawn maps, help to locate even the rarest plants.

A lovely book for nature lovers. Hertfordshire Life A must. Henley Wildlife Group Newsletter An ideal accompaniment for exploring the Chilterns. Chesham Town Talk Magazine
