As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Kew, the Royal Botanic Gardens also contributed to Flora.
This book was published in 2018, and the subtitle is Inside the Secret World of Plants.
Well, let me tell you that when I got my copy of this book, I was so pleasantly surprised.
This is a big book - it's a coffee table book. The cover is predominantly white and has a single flower featured. It is stunning.
I like to think about this fantastic book as a floral scrapbook.
So imagine if you were to put together a book of flowers. On each page, you feature a different blossom, details about the plant, the history and some outstanding characteristics of the flower, and other various aspects.
This book also reviews a little bit of the science behind why plants do what they do and how they do what they do.
Flora is beautifully illustrated with modern photography and some incredible botanical art from the ages. And it is just a joy to leaf through.
So whether you are a gardener or even a non-gardener, I think you would enjoy this book.
