The Plant Hunters tells the story of our fascination with plants and the discovery of new species.

From ancient times, when Alexander the Great included naturalists in his entourage, this intriguing story moves across the world, as plants such as coconut trees, roses and numerous fruits and vegetables were introduced from one country to another.

The book traces the establishment of botanical gardens and the discovery through exploration of plants that made or broke economies, for instance tulips, tea and rubber.

Travelling right around the world and throughout history, this is the tale of the botanical pioneers who changed the face of landscapes.
