The Botanical City

A busy person's guide to the wondrous plants to find, eat and grow in the city

By (author) Helena Dove


  • A modern, colorful take on a classic 18th-century book illustrating London's wild plants
Full Description

Cities are abundant with nature – and nowhere more so than London. So why is it that we fail to notice the greenery that surrounds our busy lives? And isn’t now the time, with the growing ecological crisis, for those of us in cities to reconnect to nature? This is a beautifully produced interpretation of an 18th-century classic, Floral Londinensis, which set out to record every wild plant in London and which remains surprisingly relevant. Working with Kew horticulture expert Helena Dove, we have handpicked the 100 most fascinating plants from the original and included highly faithful reproductions of ultra-detailed illustrations set alongside a new set of unusual facts, contemporary medicinal uses, modern recipes and more.
