Description

Illustrated with the most exquisite 18th-century artworks, The Botanical City reveals the hidden secrets of plants and flowers growing on your doorstep. Discover the wonder of urban weeds and wildflowers, their healing powers and poisons, the ancient wisdom and folklore, and get practical ideas for cooking and craft, plus expert tips on how to grow and harvest them yourself.

Written by Helena Dove and Harry Adès

Hélèna Dove manages the Kitchen Garden at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Cultivating everything from the allotment staples to more unusual edibles, she is a strong believer in using what grows around us to benefit our daily lives.  

Harry Adès is the author of An Opinionated Guide to London Green Spaces and A Field Guide to East London Wildlife, and many other titles besides. His two children are far more talented gardeners than he is, and his cats eat the flowers off his only rose bush.
