Seeds of Blood and Beauty: Scottish Plant Explorers - Paperback

Traces the development of the great Scottish plant collectors who left their quiet native shores in search of exotic specimens, often encountering great danger along the way. More explorers than gardeners, their quests took them from familiar Scottish towns to far flung mysterious territories, swapping Aberdeen for Africa, Falkirk for China, Glasgow for Afghanistan and Auchenblae for Antarctica.
