A Passion for Plants by Carolyn Fry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


No nation feels quite as passionately about its gardens as the British and no institution embodies this passion more than The Royal Horticultural Society. Famous for the beauty of gardens like Wisley, Rosemoor and Harlow Carr and the splendour of shows like Chelsea and Hampton Court, it is a quintessentially British institution. Yet the RHS is about so much more than this and now, in a fascinating book to accompany a major BBC2 series, garden-lovers everywhere are given unique access to this august institution. In Plant People we will meet and follow the people for whom gardening is everything be they RHS experts, amateur enthusiasts, the new in-take of horticultural trainees or competitors at the shows. In a journey that takes us through the gardening year, Carolyn Fry introduces the reader to an exotic and colourful world full of passionate people and wonderful plants. It is a world that is steeped in horticultural history and tradition and yet in the 21st century is entering a new and exciting period of change and development. Lavishly illustrated with beautiful photographs, this book paints a vivid portrait of the RHS - the home of gardening excellence and obsession
