Cities are abundant with nature – and nowhere more so than London. So why is it that we fail to notice the greenery that surrounds our busy lives? And isn’t now the time, with the growing ecological crisis, for those of us in cities to reconnect to nature? This is a beautifully produced interpretation of an 18th century classic, Floral Londinensis, which set out to record every wild plant in London and which remains surprisingly relevant.
