Description
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
With exquisite colour illustrations, a contemporary counterpart to medieval herbals showcasing a host of plants and exploring a wealth of Scottish plant history and lore. From marram grass and alder to yarrow, flag iris and willow: many plants are found across the British Isles but the book also includes Scottish specialists, such as the Shetland monkeyflower and cloudberry. Informative plant profiles list the English, Scottish and Gaelic common names, and include a handsome mix of botanical illustrations drawn from the Botanic garden’s archives and modern Scottish artists. From rowanberries as a 19th century gargling solution, to nettles turned into table-linen: full of fascinating details on historical uses, Scottish folk belief and habitats for each plant. With a useful glossary and indexed by scientific, English and Gaelic names.
