Scottish Plant Lore: an Illustrated Flora

By Dr Gregory Kenicer

A beautifully illustrated and expert guide to the rich and surprising folklore of Scotland’s flora. From our earliest hunter-gatherer ancestors to our high-tech modern societies, humanity would be doomed without the Green Kingdom. Plants shape us and the world around us – whether they are the crops we eat, the ornamentals that we grow in our gardens, the weeds on urban streets or the profusion of species that define wild environments. This book celebrates these plants and our relationship with them in the area that we now know as Scotland.

A visual and cultural feast, this book takes early herbals as inspiration, combining current scientific knowledge, original botanical illustrations and plant lore. Drawing on original sources, this book will demonstrate how versatile, necessary and even, occasionally, sinister, Scotland’s plants can be.
