Reviews

Advance praise for Weeds [9781846680762] 'This book will open your eyes to the significance, wonder and exasperation felt about weeds. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. Mabey offers a diversity and richness of fact, fiction, philosophy and fun ... [he] opens our minds and hearts in unexpected ways to the fallacy of an implacable divide between people and nature... a great read. * Professor Stephen Hopper, Director, Kew Gardens *
short, wise and consisently delightful. -- Johy Gray * New Statesman *
For a quick reminder of the beauty of birdsong or the heady scent of wild flowers, Mabey is the most thoughful and intimate of guides. -- Claire Allfree * Metro London *
A delightful melange of scientific reflection and personal memories. * The Countryman *
