Scotland's plants define its landscape - from the heather moorlands to the weeds and garden plants of its towns and cities. Plants have shaped the country's domestic economy and culture, providing resources for agriculture and industry as well as food, drink and medicines. They have inspired children's games and been used as components in magical charms. Drawing together traditional knowledge from archives and oral histories with the work of some of the country's finest botanical artists, this book is a celebration of the wealth of Scottish plant lore. Dr Gregory Kenicer is a botanist, lecturer and author at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh whose other popular books include Dictionary of Scottish Plant Names and Plant Magic.
