Omtale Scottish Plant Lore
Scotland's plants define its landscape - from the heather moorlands of its iconic habitats to the weeds and a garden plants of its towns and cities. Plants have shaped the country's domestic economy and culture over centuries, providing resources for agriculture and industry as well as food, drink and medicines. They have even inspired children's games and been used as components in magical charms



Drawing together traditional knowledge from archives and oral histories with the work of some of the country's finest botanical artists, this book is a magnificent celebration of the enormous wealth of Scottish plant lore.
