The wild plants of the British Isles have been providing essentials for people’s lives since mankind first set foot on our shores. Scotland, in particular, has a diverse and colourful plant lore that’s as relevant today as it was 500 years ago. Flora Celtica – Plants and People in Scotland documents the continuously evolving relationship between the Scots and their environment. Based on a mixture of detailed research and information provided by the public, this book explores the remarkable diversity of ways that native plants have been, and continue to be, used in Scotland. The information is presented in a clear and accessible format and is laced with quotations, illustrations, case studies and practical tips.
