About this book

Botanist Madeline Harley pairs clear, informative descriptions with exquisite photographs to provide unsurpassed coverage of almost 200 British weedy species. Now, for the first time, enthusiasts and non-specialists alike will be able to confidently identify these underappreciated plants – from tiny flowers smaller than a pinhead to the riotous Corn Marigold or Rosebay Willow-herb – and understand their important role in the ecosystem. Wonderful Weeds is the clearest and most comprehensive record of widespread British weeds since the early 20th Century.
