Award-winning, botantical artist and illustrator, Christina Hart-Davies presents, A Wild Plant Year, a lavishly illustrated, small-format, picture-led book covering 150-200 common wild flowers and plants, with text giving botanical information, history and folklore, medicinal or culinary uses.
The book is arranged in a through-the-year format, waymarked by festivals such as Easter, Mothering Sunday, Summer Solstice, Bonfire Night, etc. It follows a rough calendar, illustrating flowers and plants associated with each season and festival.
This little book is an ideal gift; something to dip into when relaxing, rather than a field guide, a book on the cultural, social, folkloric and medicinal history of British wild plants. The perfect gift for any nature-lovers, nostalgia-buffs, folklorists and botanical-art-lovers as well as gardeners – though, in fact, hardly any garden plants are included; it’s all wild plants!
