RHS Weeds gathers together 50 untamed and beautifully wild plant species, illustrated with exquisite botanical images from the Royal Horticultural Society’s archives. Their natural untamed beauty, ability to thrive under challenging conditions, and the attraction of growing species native to their surroundings have all taken weeds from undesirable to covetable. These subversive species no longer need to be seen as ‘plants out of place’. In the modern garden, where harmony with nature is key, weeds are finally getting their moment in the sun.
RHS Weeds highlights the delicate charms of some of the most fascinating vagabond plants around. Beautiful botanical illustrations from the Royal Horticultural Society’s collections and captivating profiles by RHS author Gareth Richards provide key information for the modern gardener on the characteristics, usefulness and cultivation of 50 unsung heroes of the plant world.
