About this book

Covering the native and naturalised plants of England, Scotland and Wales, this book sets out to fulfil the role of a cultural flora, rather than a botanical one. It is an account of the role of wild plants on social life, arts, custom and landscape. Richard Mabey, the remowned author and broadcaster, spent five years researching the work and has collated the results of a nationwide celebration of over 1,000 species. An unusual encyclopedia of living folklore.
