The Botanical City
Combining exquisite 18th century illustrations with contemporary knowledge and insights, The Botanical City reveals the hidden wonder of urban plants--their healing potential, poisons, the ancient wisdom and folklore, recipes and craft ideas--and tells you all you need to know about growing and harvesting your very own wilderness in the city. Written by Helena Dove and Harry Ades with illustrations from the 18th c. book Flora Londinensis compiled by William Curtis.
