Description & Details

Britain's Wildflowers Description

A fascinating look at the myths, folklore and botany behind over 70 British wildflowers. From hedgerows to meadows, wildflowers can be found throughout our green and pleasant land. In this book, journalist and garden writer Rosamond Richardson traces the history and myths behind each flower to discover the fascinating ways in which the plants were used. Discover which flower used as a medieval lie-detector to test the innocence of suspected criminals, or stuffed in the shoes of Roman centurions to prevent damage to their feet as they marched. From periwinkles, beloved of Chaucer, and the oxlips and `nodding violet' growing in the forest of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the book celebrates the important role wildflowers have played in literature, as well as their uses in food and medicine, and the history, myths and tales behind each species. The nineteenth-century poet John Clare wrote, `I love wildflowers (none are weeds with me)'. This book is a celebration of the bountiful history behind Britain's beloved wildflowers and is perfect for anyone with an interest in gardening, history or the natural world.

Britain's Wildflowers Book

Buying a birthday present for a lovely friend.
Her 'earliest' memories include rambling through countryside and studying wild flowers. Looked at a number of books and sent for this one. It's beautifully put together and very, very suitable for her.
Thank you so much for having it in store. Couldn't be more pleased to have found it.
