About this book

&b;Please note that a smaller and cheaper edition with largely the same content is also available.&o;

Sarah Raven will introduce you to 250 of the best and most beautiful British wild flowers you can see by simply walking out of your front door or by venturing further afield, as she did with her botanist father during her childhood. This lavishly illustrated book is divided by season and then by habitat, covering fields, gardens, ponds, coasts, woodland and wasteland. Sarah introduces a wide range of plants, telling you their names and a few interesting things about them--how to identify the families, how they're brilliantly adapted to their environment, their importance to animals and insects, what herbal remedies they can be used for, the story behind their common names and the part they play in local history. Join Sarah on trips to see pulsatillas, fritillaries, bluebells, wild garlic, harebells, forget-me-nots, foxgloves, wood spurge, silverweed, purple cranesbill, deadly nightshade, St John's wort, comfrey, orchids, wood sorrel, snowdrops and more.
