World-renowned plantsman, former presenter of BBC’s Gardener’s World and a Vice president of the RHS Roy Lancaster welcomes his new book, My Life with Plants. Published in association with the Royal Horticultural Society in celebration of his 80th birthday.
From the moment he discovered a Mexican tobacco plant in a local allotment, his career in horticulture grew along with his vast knowledge of the botanical world. He soon became an excellent story-teller, wise philosopher and inspiring figure for gardeners.
My Life with Plants is a story of Roy’s adventures, his most autobiographical book yet. From the moment when he first laid his eyes upon tropical plants in the jungles of Malaya, meeting Roberto Burle Marx at his garden near Rio de Janeiro, to hunting for pitcher plants in North America. Roy’s remarkable spirited sense of adventure combined with his admiration and respect for the natural world, create a remarkable and enchanting read.
This special signed edition of Roy Lancaster My Life With Plants is available in a slip case and is exclusive to the RHS.
